2020.10.01 19:55 EddieGordofromtekken old feelings for girl best friend coming back

(we are both currently 16, juniors in hs) I’ve known this girl since 8th grade and honestly she’s been my best girl friend i’ve ever had, she’s the sweetest most kind and beautiful girl i’ve ever met and since 8th grade we have had ups and downs like everyone else but we have always been great friends. We went to the same high school for two years which was different than the high school that we were supposed to (it is based on middle school here we had a variance) but i was in a relationship for most of those two years (not a great one but that doesn’t really matter) anyway i feel like she’s always had an on and off crush on me and maybe i did her too but the big thing blocking that was my other relationship. i’m not really great with breaking up with people and i give too many chances which is why i never broke it off, sometimes it would get better and sometimes it would be horrible. But i regret not ending it with the other girl and dating her every single day of my life. we recently started talking a lot more and i definitely still have feelings. she was talking to someone when we started talking again and they broke it off but the last few days she’s been really dry like she sends one word answers or sometimes leaves me on read for an hour or when we just send blank snaps she’ll send me a really blurry one like she’s not trying idk i kinda suck at these i just know i would be so happy if she was mine and i want to make her happy because she deserves it so much. I wrote her a paragraph i will paste below but please any advice is so appreciated i can provide more info if you need it just ask 💕
honestly i’ve wrote this so many times and it’s never come out the way i wanted it to but i feel like i have to say this, without trying to overthink it, I remember when i first met you when we sat next to eachother in spanish and i felt like you were going to hate me because I was stupid and terrible at spanish. I never would’ve believed we would become such great friends. you have picked me up when i was down more times than i could ever repay you for. you have been there for me when nobody else was. honestly you have been a better friend and an overall better person to me than anybody ever has. I don’t know if it’s just because im stupid or maybe the influence of the people i surrounded myself with but i never acted on my feelings for you and i regret it to this day. Whenever i thought about it I would think to myself that you would never see me that way or i was just being stupid and not to ruin the best friendship i’ve ever had. i’m sorry i’m really struggling with finding the right words i want this to perfectly convey how i feel but i really don’t know how to make it sound the way it does in my head. You mean the world to me andra and i don’t want to lose you by liking you but its hard to just turn off my feelings , you have helped me though so much and cared for me when nobody else did and can’t even help but fall for somebody like you. you are the most one of a kind its just the little things about you that amaze me the most. like how loyal you are no matter what and how much you really care for other people even when they don’t deserve your care. you’re so funny like when you used to facetime me out of nowhere to show me your make up or your halloween costume. or when you ask me how my mom is is the sweetest thing anybody has ever done. Not to mention how beautiful you are, your smile alone brightens my whole day. I don’t know if it would make a difference but i just wish i could go back in time and tell you how i felt sooner i regret it every day. Honestly, i became sure about these feelings a few months ago but i’m sure i subconsciously have always had them. i don’t want to mess up our friendship with this i know no matter what i say if you don’t feel the same it will always be awkward but i feel like if i don’t say something it will just end up being a big regret and i don’t want any more of those. I love you so much and you deserve to know that i think you are the most beautiful, funny, smart, loyal and caring girl in the world and you mean everything to me

2020.10.01 19:39 brainenfuego Well...this sucks...

Been a part of this community for just a while, been in a DB for 16 years, more or less. I’ll try to keep it pared down... I (45HLM) and my SO (42LLF) have been married for 16 years, together for 19. About a year before our marriage sex slowed way down. We got married, got pregnant with twins right away, and the sex pretty much halted after they were born. Clinically sexless marriage, 1-2x per month was normal, going 2 months without affection was standard issue. Spurts of 2-3x per week when I’d get so frustrated I’d snap but then it went back to nothing for weeks. I always got the tired line which I understand. We have a business, she runs it. It’s very high maintenance dealing with dance moms and drama daily, having the kids, dealing with school, etc. This last year has been trying to say the least...as with everyone else, Covid destroyed our security blanket and my SO had to go on the offensive to save the business which she did. I hold her in high regard for her integrity, her work ethic, and her values. She’s a good person all around, great mom, great daughter, etc. she’s not a great wife. And that sucks. No sexual drive at all, very prudish, which was not the case when we were dating.
I had an EA almost a year ago with a friend who I hadn’t seen in 25 years. Ran into her at a birthday party for a mutual friend in my old hometown where we grew up. Text messages turned flirty to downright sexual in a matter of days. Here’s the shitty part: my girls found the texts on our IPad and had to break the news to their mom. Everyone was devastated. I felt like a loser freak who destroyed everyone’s trust. It just felt good to get some attention...I had been starved for so long. Now I’m a piece of shit and one of my daughters absolutely hates me and treats me like I’m a disgusting piece of scum on her shoe. I have no defense except to say I’m sorry and love her, but I’m getting tired of groveling, to her and her mother. My other daughter loves me unceasingly, and we get along great.
My SO and I argue constantly. I’ve tried to be the supplicating spouse, I’ve done the chores, I’ve worked my butt off to make things right. It’s never enough, or right. Our DB continues with my needs on the back burner, somewhere below making an appointment to get the dogs anal glands expressed. It’s a shitty existence.
I’m done with this. I’m through with the guilt and the shame and the mess. The problem is, I feel like crap because I don’t want to break her heart. She has so much on her plate with our business and the girls are doing online school because Covid, she has migraines all the time and now she’s developing IBS because of the stress she’s under. I feel bad for her. But I’m freaking miserable...I feel like if I don’t leave soon, I’m going to lose my soul. I know I’ll tear the heart out of her chest, and she will despise me for leaving her in all of the mess...but I don’t know what else to do. We are incompatible with everything. Sex, finances(she spends like it’s a credit card without limits) religion, politics, our idea of how we should raise the kids, our idea of how our life should be, where we should live, etc...I give her the reins to do it all because it’s not worth the fight. But we are both miserable together. If I leave, I’ll be happy, but she will be devastated...
WHAT DO I DO???

2020.10.01 19:15 johneaston1 My Comprehensive Studio Ghibli Ranking

I started watching the Studio Ghibli library during quarantine after hearing about how incredible they were, and I finally finished watching all of them this past week. Since I started, I’ve been trying to keep a rough ranking of them. A few notes before I start: first, I tried to make this list a mix of objective quality and my personal enjoyment, though more the latter. Second, if there are any you haven’t seen, I’d recommend that you skip over those entries; many of my favorite films on this list are ones that I knew nothing about going into them, and high expectations were sometimes let down. I tried to go easy on spoilers, but they are present, so read at your own risk.
This is also sort of a tier list of the films, starting from F, and going to S.
F - Movie I have zero desire to see again; not entertaining or engaging
D - Movie had some strong points, but probably not enough to make me want to see it again
C - Solid movie: had some really good parts, but had enough dragging it down that it was occasionally hard to watch.
B - Good movie: not too many issues, or enough good things to keep it up
B+ - Really good movie: similar to B, but was overall more enjoyable, or had less keeping it down
A - Great movie: maybe one or two issue that detract from the whole, but still very enjoyable
A+ - Excellent movie: similar to A, but the issues are less noticeable, or it has a lot of amazing things that make up for them
S - Masterpiece - Rather self-explanatory, I think
Hopefully I don’t max out the character limit.
The format for this is as follows:
Rank. Title (order I watched in, format(s) I saw the movie in, # of viewings)
F Tier:
  1. Tales from Earthsea (13th, dub, once)
This is probably the least surprising placement on the list. If there was one way to describe this movie, it would be missed potential. This movie hints at so many interesting subplots and worldbuilding elements, but fails to flesh out any of them. The plot is almost engaging, but is so disjointed that it makes it difficult to get invested in it. The characters feel more like caricatures than fleshed-out humans, and the film suffers for it. The animation and soundtrack are both solid, so there are some plusses, but overall unimpressive.
  1. My Neighbors the Yamadas (20th, dub, once)
I should probably try this movie again; I didn't make it very far into it, mostly due to the art style, and the knowledge that it's a collection of shorts rather than a cohesive narrative. This is the only Ghibli film I didn't finish, mostly just due to lack of interest. I don't have a whole lot else to say about it.
D Tier:
  1. Only Yesterday (18th, dub, once)
The first controversial opinion of the list. I know a lot of people love this one, and part of me sees where they are coming from. However, this film simply didn't work for me. I thought the parts with young Taeko were pretty good, but I found myself getting bored during all of her adult segments, which is a shame. I also really didn't like the overall message of the movie, which seemed to be forgetting/letting go of your childhood. Perhaps if I were a little older or a bit less nostalgic I'd like it more, but as it stands, this one was a slog to get through. Sidenote: why are all of Taeko’s family members such jerks?
  1. Pom Poko (19th, dub, once)
You know what the Tanuki suit in Super Mario Bros 3 was missing? Definitely not expanding scrotums. This movie was weird. The plot was solid enough, and the characters were ok, but not good enough to keep me engaged. I felt no connection to any of the Tanukis, unfortunately. I did like the ending though; the rest just felt subpar.
C Tier
  1. The Cat Returns (9th, dub, once)
I had high expectations for this movie; two of my best friends said it was one of their favorites, so I expected something great. Parts of it were: Tim Curry as the villian and Cary Elwes as The Baron were excellent, for example. However, the animation was some of the weakest of the entire catalogue, and I really didn't like Haru. It seemed like everything just happened to her during the movie. She never pushes the plot forward, and isn't likable enough to make up for her lack of agency.
B Tier
  1. Ponyo (15th, dub, once)
The first Ghibli film I really enjoyed! I went in with pretty low expectations; I had heard what the basic premise was, and it didn’t sound super interesting. However, I was pleasantly surprised. Ponyo and Sosuke are both adorable, and the rest of the characters are super engaging and likeable. The plot was a bit lackluster, and I remember basically nothing of the soundtrack, but the animation is probably the best of any Ghibli film, rivaled only by Howl’s Moving Castle and Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind. There were several points where I thought “how did they even animate that?” Sidenote: Sosuke’s mom should be a professional racecar driver, like holy crap.
B+ Tier
  1. The Tale of the Princess Kaguya (12th, dub, once)
This film is frustrating to me. I really enjoyed most of it; the characters, voice acting, animation style, and soundtrack are all good. My biggest issue is the plot; specifically, the ending. It felt to me like the entire movie, Princess Kaguya was trying to just be free and unbound by anyone else’s expectations, but then she is taken back to the moon against her will, which felt like it undermined the rest of the story. I get that it was based on a Japanese legend, but it really ruined my enjoyment of the film; it may honestly be even lower, given enough time.
  1. The Wind Rises (11th, dub, once)
Another movie I had very few expectations going into, and was happy with what I saw. As an aspiring engineer, I really enjoyed watching Jiro’s work throughout the film, and the plot was one of the strongest of the entire library, in my opinion. The romance was a bit underdeveloped, in my opinion, but it didn’t detract a ton. The animation was gorgeous as well. I think the voice actors could have been a bit better, and the soundtrack wasn’t particularly memorable, but a very solid movie overall.
  1. Howl’s Moving Castle (2nd, dub, twice)
Please don’t crucify me for this. I had very high expectations going into this movie; I had just seen Spirited Away, and I had read that a lot of people consider it their favorite. On first viewing, I was slightly disappointed. The plot seemed nonsensical, and while the soundtrack and animation were incredible, I was too bewildered by the story to appreciate it. When I watched it a second time, however, I liked it a lot more. The plot and characters made a lot more sense to me, though the movie is still a bit frantic. The narrative and themes are all over the place, and the film couldn’t seem to decide what it wanted to be. That being said, I understand why so many people love it so much; it is a very heartfelt and complex story with beautiful animation and soundtrack to accompany it.
  1. Porco Rosso (14th, Buena Vista dub, once)
I felt like Porco in this movie was a metaphor for a middle-aged man who becomes jaded with life, and only digs himself out of the hole he dug when he finds someone he is forced to care about. Really fun movie. I loved the dogfights, and the story was very touching. I loved Theo and Porco’s dynamic, though a 17-year-old with a crush on a middle-aged man felt odd. Maybe I misinterpreted it, I don’t know. The fistfight at the end was very dull though, definitely a letdown after the incredible flying sequences. The voice acting was also incredible in this one, an all-star cast. I wasn’t a huge fan of any of the villains, but that’s probably my biggest major knock against it.
A Tier
  1. My Neighbor Totoro (4th, Buena Vista dub (I’m pretty sure), once)
As I continued watching the Ghibli library, I felt I used this movie as a measuring stick. If I liked a movie more than Totoro, then it was A tier or higher. If not, B+ or lower. More than anything, this film felt like a distillation of childhood wonder turned into a movie. If you’ve ever read Calvin and Hobbes, that is what this movie reminded me most of. I loved all the characters, the animation was amazing, and the sense of imagination is almost unmatched in this movie. The plot is kind of slow, but that is far from a dealbreaker; everything else more than makes up for it. More than any of the others, this is the movie I want to show my kids when I have them.
  1. Whisper of the Heart (7th, dub, twice)
This was another movie I didn’t like much on my first viewing. I found both Seiji and Shizuku unlikable, was bored during her writing segments, didn’t like the plot much, and was overall unimpressed. I decided to watch it again, and wow. Turns out, when you don’t watch a movie right after a night shift at work, it gets a lot better. While the story still isn’t my favorite, I enjoyed the characters much more, wasn’t bored at all (probably because I wasn’t exhausted), and appreciated Shizuku’s imagination a lot more. As a massive John Denver fan, the Country Roads scene alone also elevates the movie a half tier by itself.
  1. From Up on Poppy Hill (6th, sub then dub, twice)
This ranking may surprise a lot of people; I’m aware this isn’t a super popular film compared to the rest. While it’s not groundbreaking in really any way, it’s such a charming story that I can’t help but love it. They really had me going with the incest twist though; Shun and Umi have the exact same facial structure. Glad that ended up not being the case. I loved the soundtrack, the characters, the animation, and the story. The Latin Quarter had a slight touch of magic to it, which I appreciated very much, and the idea of preserving the past appeals very much to me. I will say the dub was better here; it removes a scene of them confessing their love to each other while they still thought they were siblings (glad it’s gone). Overall a very sweet movie.
  1. The Secret World of Arrietty (12th, British dub, once)
WATCH THE BRITISH DUB. Seriously. I’ve heard about how awful the NA dub is, and the British version fixes all the problems, and has incredible voice acting to boot. Anyway, onto the actual movie. I knew basically nothing about this movie going in, but absolutely loved it. The soundtrack alone really elevates this movie for me. I really liked both Sho and Arrietty, and while the plot wasn’t incredibly great, it works well. My only real gripe is that the villain is so oddly one-dimensional; I have no idea why she hates the Borrowers so much, and she doesn’t have nearly enough personality to make up for it. I love this movie otherwise, though.
A+ Tier
  1. Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind (8th, the only dub that exists, twice)
Yet another film I liked a lot more on a second viewing. This is probably the most ambitious story Ghibli has told, and just about all of it works really well. There are a few parts that are a bit unrefined, but not irreparably so. The characters and their motivations are believable, the setting is amazing, one of the best, and there are many scenes that are just incredible. The ones that come to mind are the one underneath the toxic jungle and the ending, where the Ohmu revive her and cease their rampage. The soundtrack is definitely a bit dated but it works most of the time, even if it is a bit conspicuous. Despite being the first film, it’s animation is some of the best in the catalogue.
  1. Princess Mononoke (21st, dub, twice)
Please don’t kill me for this ranking please, I really do like this movie. I know this is a ton of people’s favorite, and I absolutely see why. It’s an incredibly deep and complex story, accompanied by masterful animation, an incredible yet subtle soundtrack, and very good voice talent. I feel that San and Ashitaka could have been slightly more developed, but that is a matter of personal opinion more than anything. The reason this film isn’t higher is that there is nothing that truly elevates it; objectively, it may be the highest quality Ghibli movie overall, but there is no scene or aspect that does that for me. I realize that is a very subjective point. Of all the Ghibli films, this is the most likely to rise on later viewings; the more I think about the movie, the more I like it.
  1. When Marnie Was There (16th, dub, once)
At the opposite end of the subjectivity spectrum is this one. This one was probably the biggest surprise to me when I watched it; again, I went in expecting nothing, and ended up loving it. Anna is a very relatable protagonist to me, though I was not quite so introverted as she is. I found the mystery of Marnie to be very interesting, and the ending was very moving. I loved the development of Anna and Marnie’s friendship, and as per usual, the soundtrack and animation were top-notch. My only gripe is that the whole mystery bit could have been done a bit better, but ehh, it’s not a huge deal.
  1. Kiki’s Delivery Service (3rd, 2010 Disney dub, once)
This was one of the films where I went in with high expectations, and was actually very satisfied with the results. Kiki is a very charming protagonist, and her exploits were always fun to watch. The aspect of the film I may have enjoyed the most was the idea of your passion becoming a chore, and losing your spark because of it. All of the things Ghibli specializes in are in full force here - strong characters, solid soundtrack, wonderful animation, and great voice acting. All in all, a very fun movie.
S Tier
  1. Castle in the Sky (5th, 2003 Disney dub, twice)
I watched this on a whim, and knew immediately that it was one of, if not my only favorite. I love the imagination in this movie, and its influence can be seen in all sorts of Japanese media for years after its release. Everything about this movie is incredible: the voice acting, the soundtrack, the animation, the characters, the story. I love the little details in this movie also: the one that comes to mind is the little smirk that Pazu gives Sheeta after putting on her necklace at the beginning. Mark Hamill, of course, is phenomenal, and steals nearly every scene he’s in. This may be the film I end up rewatching the most later on, just because I love it so much.
  1. Spirited Away (1st, dub, thrice)
This one comes as a surprise to probably no one; Spirited Away is Hayao Miyazaki’s magnum opus, and an absolutely incredible experience. This is another movie that I feel requires multiple viewings to fully appreciate; the first time I watched it, I knew it was something special, but I couldn’t quite grasp why. After doing a bit of research on No-face, and thinking it over, my second viewing is what cemented it as one of my all-time favorite movies. I mentioned with Princess Mononoke how there was no scene that elevates that movie for me; this movie is full of scenes that elevate it: the train scene, the day at the river where Haku gives Chihiro the rice patties, and the introduction to the spirit world, just to name a few. One of two movies where my high expectations were completely blown away. I would recommend this movie to almost anyone, and it is very dear to me.
  1. Grave of the Fireflies (17th, sub, once)
Anyone who has seen this movie will understand what I mean when I say “the greatest movie that I never want to watch again.” While not quite that drastic (I will probably rewatch it at some point), this movie was gut-wrenching. I went in expecting a tear-jerker, but I was not remotely ready. From the opening, it is very clear that this is not a lighthearted film. This never changes. The movie ends at an even lower point than it starts. One aspect I like about the film is that it is not simply tragedy befalling Seita and Setsuko, as they are helplessly fighting it; Seita makes believable decisions that you, the viewer, know cannot end well, but the hole that keeps being dug is never filled. My favorite scene is the one with the fireflies they catch to light their bunker. I have never cried as much during a film as I did during this one, and unlike many other stories, there is no uplifting ending, such as in Coco or Toy Story 3. The movie simply ends, with brother and sister only content in death.
I think that a lot of these movies really benefit from having no idea what to expect; Arrietty, When Marnie Was There, and Castle in the Sky are the best examples of this for me, but I think all are like this to some extent.
Please keep in mind that this list is largely opinion-based, and my disliking a certain movie is not an attack on your taste in films. There are a lot of people who love Only Yesterday, and while that movie did not work for me, I respect that opinion. The opposite is true of When Marnie Was There and From Up on Poppy Hill. If you think I would have enjoyed a different version of one of the films more than the one I watched, please let me know. I deeply enjoyed going through these, and I cannot wait to introduce more of my friends to them.
TL:DR
  1. Tales from Earthsea
  2. My Neighbors the Yamadas
  3. Only Yesterday
  4. Pom Poko
  5. The Cat Returns
  6. Ponyo
  7. The Tale of the Princess Kaguya

ALL BALLOTS DROPPED OFF NEED TO BE DROPPED OFF BY 5:00 ON THE DAY BEFORE ELECTION DAY (Monday, November 2).
Hey people of New Hampshire!
Absentee ballots are starting to go out, so here's what you need to know:

VOTER REGISTRATION

If you are not registered to vote, plan to register to vote today. NEW HAMPSHIRE HAS NO ONLINE VOTER REGISTRATION, so there are (3) main methods of voter registration:
(1) register in-person at your Town Clerk's office.
(2) call your town clerk and ask them to mail you one (IT IS, AT THIS POINT OF TIME, IT IS BEST TO REGISTER IN-PERSON)
(3) Register to vote at the polls on Election Day (**NEW HAMPSHIRE HAS SAME-DAY VOTER REGISTRATION)
NOTE: In-person registration prior to Election Day need to be done at a time before the Supervisor of the Checklist Meeting occurs in your city or town; this can be any time between 6-13 days before the election (between Wednesday, October 21 and Wednesday, October 28). The specific date for this meeting varies by city & town, so check with your local municipality to see when that meeting will take place.
YOU CANNOT PRINT A VOTER REGISTRATION FORM ONLINE AND SEND IT IN TO YOUR CITY/TOWN CLERK; YOU WOULD HAVE TO CONTACT YOUR CLERK AND THEN HAVE A REGISTRATION FORM MAILED TO YOU.
https://sos.nh.gov/elections/voters/register-to-vote/
https://sos.nh.gov/elections/voters/register-to-vote/registering-to-vote-in-new-hampshire/
https://www.vote.org/state/new-hampshire/
NEW HAMPSHIRE HAS NO EARLY VOTING, so you can either vote absentee-by-mail, or in-person on Election Day.

VOTING ABSENTEE-BY-MAIL:

If you are want to vote absentee by mail, request a ballot now. You can drop off this form to your City or Town Clerk's office
https://sos.nh.gov/elections/voters/absentee-ballots/request-an-absentee-ballot/
If you have requested and received and you have requested and received your ballot, READ THE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU FILL IN YOUR BALLOT, then fill in your ballot, and then MAKE SURE TO SIGN YOUR NAME IN THE CORRECT PLACE. Forgetting to sign your name is a common, yet easily avoidable, reason for ballot rejection.
Once you are done, DO NOT MAIL BACK YOUR BALLOT.
New Hampshire, by design, makes it very easy for you to drop-off your ballot, because, like all other states in New England (as well as Michigan and Wisconsin),
Unlike all the states as mentioned above, NEW HAMPSHIRE DOES NOT HAVE DROP-BOXES.
IF YOUR CITY OR TOWN HAS A DROP-BOX OR A MAIL SLOT, THAT IT IS NOT INTENDED TO BE USED FOR BALLOTS (IT WOULD BE USED FOR OTHER PURPOSES). UNDER NEW HAMPSHIRE STATE LAW, YOU CANNOT DROP OFF YOUR BALLOT IN THAT DROP-BOX OR MAIL SLOT.
https://www.concordmonitor.com/ballot-dropoff-voting-absentee-new-hampshire-election-35719391
Instead, you would need to hand-deliver your ballot to your City or Town Clerk's office during business hours. A directory to ALL City or Town Clerk's Offices can be found at the top of the page.
It is recommended that show a valid form of photo ID, when delivering your ballot to the Clerk's Office. If the voter proves identity, the larger envelope and the Clerk’s list of absentee voters will be marked “voter verified.”
If the voter’s absentee ballot is challenged on election day, the Moderator may consider this evidence that the voter’s identity was verified by the clerk when ruling on the challenge. This is not a requirement, but you should do it if you have proper ID.
You can find a list of valid Photo ID here (Again, to make it clear, while showing ID when dropping off your ballot is voluntary, if you have one of these forms of ID when dropping off your ballot, you may as well show it):
https://sos.nh.gov/elections/information/election-laws/voter-identification-law/
If you cannot drop off yourself, you can designate somebody else as a delivery agent to have them drop your ballot off for you.

2020.10.01 18:00 SaintRidley Wrestling Observer Rewind ★ Apr. 25, 1988

Going through old issues of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter and posting highlights in my own words, continuing in the footsteps of daprice82. For anyone interested, I highly recommend signing up for the actual site at f4wonline and checking out the full archives.

  • The WWF and NWA have major events this coming week. WWF is having their first live shows after Wrestlemania with tapings Thursday and Friday, while the NWA has the Crockett Cup set for Friday and Saturday. Additionally, World Class and Memphis are preparing for their big shows on May 8 and 9, respectively.
  • Rounds one and two of the Crockett Cup will take place on the first night. That’s roughly 14 matches, assuming a double elimination in the first round, plus a Jimmy Garvin vs. Kevin Sullivan blindfold match. The second night should have the quarter finals through the finals, Midnight Rider vs. J.J. Dillon in a bullrope match, and Flair vs. Koloff for the NWA Title. There are still two unannounced teams for the tournament, and Dave lists the ones he does know. One of the unannounced teams is simply listed as “The Japanese Entry.” Dave figures LugeWindham or the Road Warriors should be the favorites to win, with the Fantastics as the longshot team.
  • World Class has only announced four matches for the Mike and David Von Erich Memorial Parade of Champions. King Parsons defends the title against Kerry Von Erich, Bill Irwin faces Angel of Death, and then two gimmicks. The first they’re calling a Texas Roundup. It’s a Royal Rumble, and since it’ll be Mother’s Day, every mother in the audience gets to pick a wrestler and if that wrestler wins, he draws a name from his supporters in the crowd and whomever he picks, she wins a prize. The other gimmick match is something Dave understands is brand new, but that’s about it - he’s unclear on the actual nature of the match. Let’s just say it’s called a “Triple Dome of Terror” match and wait for Dave to find out what that is and what it means.
  • Memphis rarely pushes a card weeks in advance, but they’re making big efforts for May 9. The LawleHennig match for the AWA World Title has a few stipulations attached to it. First, Lawler has vowed to retire if he does not win the title. They also have a special referee, with a 900 number set up to poll fans with the fan poll deciding whether the referee will be Larry Hennig or Jackie Fargo. Obviously, they’re going to bring in Fargo - he was the big name in Memphis before Lawler. And since it’s going to be Jerry Lawler night, they want to break the all-time gate record for the building (currently standing at $80,000 for a 1985 Lawler vs. Flair match), they’ve raised ringside ticket prices to $25 with ringside fans allowed to attend a post-match party for Lawler. Man, if they’ve got a party planned? I wonder who’s going to be AWA champion starting May 9.
  • So those letters to Financial News Network that Observer readers have been sending seem to be effecting some change. They got a lot of letters asking about airing New Japan, so they’ve cleared a tentative time slot and seem ready to begin negotiations. There’s a lot to work out before any kind of deal can be made (cost of tape, commentary, etc.), but Dave thinks there’s a decent chance we could see New Japan on American tv sometime soon.
  • It’s still a slow week, so Dave’s going to go more in depth on the reader poll about Wrestlemania/Clash and other stuff. He got over 600 responses, and the ratio since he first reported on the poll results still stands roughly 13:1 in favor of Clash, and only four picked a Wrestlemania match for best of the night while Sting/Flair beat Fantastics/Midnight Express by four votes.
  • The non-Wrestlemania/Clash questions got much less response. Opinion split 55% to 45% against state athletic commissions. Most in favor said they don’t want regulation in the ring, but do think wrestling itself needs some regulations, while some of the votes against aren’t opposed to the concept, but voted based on how it works out right now. An overwhelming majority felt blood should be used in wrestling at least occasionally, with 67% even choosing “occasionally” as their response. Dave asked the same question two years ago, and comparatively it seems fewer fans these days want blood frequently and fewer want it outright banned as well. Only 8% wanted blading banned, and only 20% wanted more than one match a night to have blood. Stylistically, New Japan’s style won 53% of the vote for style preference, with Mid South’s style winning 16%; NWA, Memphis, and Stampede all winning 7-10%; and WWF style receiving 4% of the vote. Many votes for New Japan specified their junior heavyweight style specifically, effectively voting for smaller, faster, better conditioned wrestlers and maybe more technical wrestling than brawling. Or maybe just more action and cool moves as the basis for the action.
  • Gordon Solie has been flown in to Memphis weekly lately to do voiceovers of Memphis matches for that new tv show he and Jerry Jarrett and others are trying to start up in Florida.
  • A deal is in the works for Jerry Lawler’s weekly Jerry Lawler Show. It’s a 30 minute talk show he does on the local NBC affiliate on Sunday mornings, mostly about wrestling but sometimes other sports too, and there’s talk of getting it syndicated nationally or put on cable.
  • [Memphis] Jeff Jarrett has a real problem here with getting over as a babyface. They’re booking him as this heartthrob babyface, but he gets major heat with the fans because he’s small and it’s well known that his father runs the company. Since most of the fans are men, this has led to his cheers from women and girls getting drowned out by boos because the men, particularly the teenagers and early 20s set, don’t want to cheer for a guy they perceive as skinny, and especially not for a skinny guy who’s marketed as a sex symbol for girls. Turns out Jarrett will never be a guy who can get over as a babyface. He just doesn't have it in him.
  • Stampede is doing really well still, though that may cool off once Owen Hart leaves for a tour of Japan in May. After that he’s going to join the WWF, where the speculation all seems to be toward the idea of him and Bret teaming as a babyface tag team.
  • TSN is only three weeks behind on Calgary tapes for Stampede now. When they started broadcasting the shows they were 11 weeks behind, so this is a major improvement.
  • Diamond Dallas Page debuted for AWA at the April 16 taping. Dave notes that he has a good look and seems like he can do well for himself, but he also appears to be 6’4”, which means he towers over most of the AWA roster. He’s also unique as a manager, being the first Dave’s ever seen to have his own valet.
  • A little perspective on how shit AWA is at this stage: in one match on that taping, Wahoo McDaniel beat Curt Hennig in a non-title cage match with an Irish Whip. Also, they had Paul Diamond beat Greg Gagne by disqualification when Marty Janetty ran in and attacked him after he threw salt in Greg’s eyes. Dave asks how out of touch they have to be to use “that ancient salt gimmick.”
  • Chavo Guerrero is in Mexico, teaming with his younger brother Eddie. Eddie is apparently really hot on the scene there right now.
  • At AWA’s last ESPN taping, they had a graphic for this blond kid that labeled him Pistol Pete. Well, he’s not Pistol Pete, and most California readers would know that already. The real Pistol Pete balked at the idea of doing three jobs for only $150 and decided not to work the show, but since they’d already set the graphics, they grabbed another jobber and called him Pistol Pete.
  • [USA Wrestling] Buddy Landel is doing an amazing job of making Doug Furnace look fantastic. Dave thinks it’s clear Furnas has potential, and Landel is doing splendidly at helping him showcase that potential, but the more he sees the less convinced Dave is that Furnas has it. He’s a tremendous athlete, but his promos and working just aren’t there at all. They’ve got their own name for their ripoff Royal Rumble: the Cyclone Stampede.
  • Some correction and clarification on Chris Adams and his injuries from last week. He didn’t suffer a broken cheekbone, and he returned to the ring three days after the injury and is wearing a baseball catcher’s mask. World Class is ignoring that Mike George did it with a dropkick and are instead claiming that Terry Taylor paid “another wrestler in another territory” to hurt him. Why not just write that Taylor paid George to do it? That just feels easier.
  • World Class is still advertising Fabulous Lance everywhere they’re going. He’s still not here. In fact, he’s very probably still in South Africa, where he’s been wrestling under the Lance Von Erich name.
  • Another correction, this time to Dave’s prior correction last week. Black Bart and Buddy Roberts were in fact shining flashlights into fans’ eyes during the blackout during the King Parsons/Kerry Von Erich title match. As creative a finish as it was, Dave still thinks Parsons as champion was a terrible idea. A title means something when the fans believe it has value, and that’s why most titles in wrestling today mean nothing. It needs a world class performer to hold it to build that meaning, and the World Class title has meant next to nothing its whole existence, so for it to be won the way it was won and be held by a prelim guy like the Iceman means nothing good for the title or the promotion and does not help sell tickets. WCCW needs to put on good matches and sell tickets if they want to improve their standing, not hot shot a bunch of stupid creative gimmicks. Honestly, WCCW at this time almost sounds like post-Russo WCW.
  • [All Japan] Yoshiaki Yatsu worked through a broken leg against Bruiser Brody on April 4. The winner would face Tenryu on April 15 to unify the titles. Brody won, obviously. Yatsu took a heavy dose of painkillers meant to last an hour at 7:30 pm, but since the card went long, his match didn’t start until after the painkillers started wearing off. He worked 15 minutes like that before losing by countout, causing Brody to retain the International Title.
Watch: Yatsu vs. Brody
  • All Japan is also planning to unify its three tag titles into one supreme tag title in May. Tenryu and Hara hold the PWF World Tag Titles, the Road Warriors hold the International Tag Titles, and Footloose (Samson Fuyuki and Toshiaki Kawada) hold the Asian Tag Titles. Well, not exactly, Dave. The All Asia Tag Titles will stay separate, but they will unify the PWF and International Tag Titles, but it won’t happen until June 10.
  • Ivan Putski is a feature story in June’s Muscle Training Illustrated. He now owns a Gold’s Gym in Austin, Texas. Fun fact - Pustki was my dad’s favorite wrestler when he was a kid.
  • There’s a guy on the independent scene in Ohio who’s still running shows and wrestling at the age of 67. Luis “Arriba” Martinez is said to be a physical marvel.
Watch: a bit of Luis Martinez wrestling in 1980. If he looked even half this good 8 years later, yeah, that’s impressive
  • New Japan ran a fan appreciation card on April 10 with a ton of gimmicks. They had a five minute judo exhibition with Seiki Sakaguchi (former 3rd place in the world in judo in the late 60s before becoming a pro wrestler) drawing against comedy jobber Don Arakawa. Tatsumi Fujinami went to a couple five minute draws, then Inoki also had two five minute matches, beating Masaharu Funaki before losing to Keiichi Yamada when Funaki interered, leading to Yamada pinning Inoki. That’s the big surprise of the show. Also, Hiroshi Hase won a sumo tournament on the show.
  • Leilani Kai and Judy Martin will be showing up in AJW to work with the Jumping Bomb Angels for the rest of their time there, until the end of June or early July.
  • Reborn UWF officially announced its formation at an April 8 press conference. Maeda says they’ve learned from their mistakes and are claiming that the reason they can only run one show a month is because since they are promoting “shooting fights” the punishment involved precludes more frequent shows.
  • Road Warriors aren’t on the next tour for All Japan, so it looks like title unification plans need to be postponed.
  • The NWA looks poised to lose access to the Nassau Coliseum. Coliseum officials want to go back to WWF, which won’t run shows there as long as they let NWA run shows, and that puts the proposed June 24 Crockett show in jeopardy. It also means Crockett’s got a tough road ahead if they want to keep promoting shows in New York, because that leaves them the Westchester County Center as their best option. And while that building is more accessible than the Coliseum, it has the reputation of being a minor league building, so the draws will be less.
  • The scoreboard at the end of the NWA’s April 15 Boston Gardens show read “We hope you enjoyed tonight’s WWF event.” LOLNWA
  • If you missed any NWA tv this week, you didn’t miss anything. Commentary and interviews talked about nothing but Dusty Rhodes and Midnight Rider. We’re a week out from the biggest event of the year to date for them, so you’d think they’d acknowledge the Crockett Cup. Nope, only barely acknowledging that. Not one first round pairing was named (probably for the best to make people actually want to go to the Greenville show), no teams listed, nothing but a shitty skit between J.J. Dillon and Jim Crockett and an announcement that Flair is defending against Nikita Koloff. They’d better hope Dusty can draw for the next four months with the Midnight Rider gimmick, because that seems to be the only thing they’re banking on. Dave thinks NWA have already managed to piss away whatever momentum they had coming out of Clash by refocusing everything back on Dusty, when what helped make Clash work was Dusty taking a back seat. He’s not saying Dusty should retire, but he shouldn’t be the top star. Take a role more like Jimmy Valiant had for a while - he’s got a big following, could sell some tickets, and could be used to feud with low or midcard heels in short, bloody matches that the crowd ate up.
  • Not much of consequence in the letters, but one guy thinks Dave is unfair to Stan Kowalski and thinks if “we had more of the old crop of wrestlers still active, this sport wouldn’t be a one promotion business as it is today.” If more promotions embraced the aging part timer, we’d have a healthier business, I guess is the logic.
  • Looks like Hillbilly Jim is not on the WWF spring cleaning list after all. And also looks like most of the releases will happen in May or June.
  • WWF has put out ads in some cities for Honkytonk vs. Beefcake listing Honkytonk as the challenger. So expect a title change soon, Dave reckons. It may be a misprint, but Dave doesn’t believe in misprints on this kind of stuff. Yeah, not yet and not Beefer.
  • WWF Magazine is scheduling a piece revealing Earl Hebner as Dave Hebner’s twin brother. Guess they aren’t dropping that angle after all.
  • There’s talk of WWF doing a big show at Exhibition Stadium in Toronto again. WWF’s last show there had Hogan vs. Orndorff drawing just under 70,000 fans. Andre/Hogan again would pop a big turnout, and Ontario was the only place where Wrestlemania this year drew enough at closed circuit for it to be worthwhile.
  • In the wake of the David Sammartino attacking a fan thing, WWF has sent letters to all wrestlers and office staff saying that such incidents are grounds for immediate dismissal. Linda McMahon even sent a “personal nasty letter” to Sammartino as well. Sammartino had been booked for several independent shows in New York against Iron Sheik, but the state commission has suspended him for three months. Dave commends the WWF for instituting such a policy, but wonders where this energy was in previous years when other wrestlers did such things. In Fresno, Randy Savage went into the stands once some time back to hit a guy and according to newspaper reports the guy ducked and he knocked out a 14 year old girl. There’s rumor of a San Francisco lawsuit coming against a WWF wrestler who knocked a security guard over in February. So this smells like a double standard of sorts to Dave, just like the drug policy, which the wrestlers joke about, saying you catch a suspension if they find coke in your system and you catch a suspension if they don’t find roids in your system. So this feels like PR rather than real, substantive policy.
  • Dave’s got some word on the gimmick for the Memorial Parade of Champions at Texas Stadium. It’s going to be called something like the Triple Tower of Doom and have three rings put on top of each other with a cage around them and matches going on in all three simultaneously. The top two rings will have some kind of hole cut through them with a firefighter’s pole allowing the wrestlers to slide down to the other rings when they want to. Apparently Dusty is pissed off about this because it was his idea for this year’s Bash (a la WarGames last year) and Michael Hayes has beat him to it. Dave wasn’t wrong about not quite understanding the gimmick earlier, because that description is off. Rather than explain it myself, I’ll let WCCW do that for me and you can marvel at how awful this is. If this really was a Dusty idea, then I’ll say it straight up: Dusty lucked out in coming up with WarGames.
Watch: The Triple Dome of Terror
NEXT WEEK: Windham becomes fourth horseman, Sting and Luger win Crockett Cup, UWF sets sellout record - 15 minutes, Roddy Piper to make surprise appearance, Brody does clean job in Japan, and more

2020.10.01 17:43 doh_tee_horne 1 Year Review 2015 Leaf S plus trying to sell it!

I have owned my 2015 Leaf for a full year now and I felt it would be beneficial to provide a 1 year later review. Please reference my original post for that info.
I have put 5000 miles on the car in that period of time (now at 59k miles), which is approximately 130 L2 charges and 2 quick charges (it only had 5 when I bought it). I have exclusively driven it around town for all of my needs, as you can see from above I was at about 40 miles (38.5 miles) per charge (this includes "topoff" charges that skew the results).
I found that I consistently hit about 50 miles per charge on average, (all reference to hitting LBW alert) ranging from 45 miles one extremely hot week here in Florida to 72 miles (in a mild spring climate).
Per a previous post, the battery SOH was at 85.16% when purchased, at last check I was at 82.37%, still at 11 bars. this is one of the things I REALLY WORRIED ABOUT when I was trying to find a Leaf, and now I am impressed that my approximate degradation (fluctuations aside) is about 2.8% for the last year. It has also been nice to not pay for any fuel for this car (free work charging).
The utility of the vehicle has been truly astonishing, I have hauled a bunch of soil, a bunch of concrete blocks, all my surf fishing gear and basically anything else I have needed. It has been unimpressive vehicle so far as its application in a suburban persons life with relatively limited driving needs (say the person who put 5K miles on the car in a single year!)
I have only lubricated moving parts, wiper fluid, and aired up tires in the year that I have owned the Leaf with with the exception of a trip to the dealership to tighten and lubricate some hard to reach bolts on/near the axle that clicked on acceleration when starting/stopping, there might have been some 50k mile stuff I had done, can't recall). Super Low Maintencine, this cannot be understated.
The car had been a blast to drive. This also cannot be understated. The leaf is a great vehicle for my use, and it probably could be for most people with a small alteration to your lifestyle.
All of this being said, I have come to a point in life where owning two vehicles is not necessary, my wife now works across the street and we carpool (YAYAYAYAYAY). We had purchased(financed) a Prius for her commute and she found a better job closer to home (fortunately, pre-pandemic) and the Prius has been used very little (my wife's commute was 80 miles/roundtrip when the Prius was purchased). So in an effort to save money and resources, we have decided to part ways with the Leaf, it just can't handle the 50-60 mile trips at higher speeds (that are now a regular part of our lives (for personal/medical reasons). The prius just makes more sense for us right now(it has a greater resale value and lower loan value).
This has introduced a new challenge (only significant one to date), selling a used Nissan Leaf in NE Florida. I have posted it and had a couple interested people, but it is just been a tough sell, people seem apprehensive to make the EV switch. I have priced it at the higher end of the KBB price for private party sales (the car is in great shape and the battery is still at 11/12 on the bars) and its lower than all dealership listing asking price in the area. It seems like a good deal (maybe I have a serious case of seller's bias) It might also just be a bad time to sell the car.

I hope this was somewhat helpful! Ask any questions you might have, I am happy to help.

2020.10.01 17:00 ReconEG Announcing the r/indieheads Album of the Year 2020 Series + Album of the Year 2014 Wrap-Up!

Announcing the indieheads Album of the Year 2020 Series + Album of the Year 2014 Wrap-Up!
And with yesterday’s The Hotelier write-up, that does it for Album of the Year 2014! 29 write-ups across the 30 days (unfortunately we missed one) of September. In case it wasn’t clear why we chose to do a throwback series for 2014, I wanted to slowly go back to the years we missed since we started the series in 2015, with 2014 being the first to cover. While you’ll be able to find all the write-ups in one place on the u/indieheadsAOTY account, here they all are in one post:

But now we must look to the future as I’m excited to announce the indieheads Album of the Year 2020 Series! Like years before, we’ll be looking to post a write-up every single day for the month of December, finding 31 of the subreddit’s best writers to talk about their favorite albums of the year.
The indieheads Album of the Year Series returns this December for its 2020 run!
So, this Tuesday, October 6th, we’ll be opening the floor for our first round of sign-ups/pitches, as we’ll be selecting 25 of the best pitches by Tuesday, October 20th. If your pitch doesn’t get selected during this first round or you want to discuss an album that’s coming out in OctobeNovember, we’ll be having a second round of pitches that’ll go up on Tuesday, November 10th, ending on Sunday, November 15th with the full lineup/schedule being announced Tuesday, November 17th. Additionally, we've had this as a soft rule in the past but to make it clear now, December 2019 albums will be in contention for selection. I’ll also post these ground rules for pitching in the thread on Tuesday, but if you want to get prepared early here’s what you need to know:
  1. Down in the comments below, submit a 50-200 word pitch on the album you’d like to cover explaining why you want to write about it and what your angle is going to be on it. If I see any of you take a basic track-by-track style format where you just tell people what happens in the album without saying anything significant we will scream at you. Don’t be afraid to be vulnerable, or experiment with your format. You don’t need to write a Southern California himbo manifesto like I did this year on Joyce Manor, but I want some personality to show through in the writing rather than boilerplate formatting. The best writing here has always come from a place of genuine connection to the art that inspired it.
  2. If you have any music writing experience from previous series (e.g. previous AOTY series, Canadian Indie Rock, FYCs, anything similar) on the sub, or even just writing elsewhere, be it through publications or self published, throw it in below your pitch! While we’re happy to take people of most skill levels here and let the boys in the editing room guide your piece towards some level of coherence, we would love to see at least a few trusted names give me some good takes on records they love!
  3. Once again, we’ll be setting deadlines slightly differently than before, as I’ve been running the series now for six years and sometimes these last-minute write-ups we get sent are not or barely publishable. Your writeup needs to be finished TWO DAYS before its posting date, no exceptions. We’re not gonna hear any ifs, ands, or buts, you have to have it in by that time so we can get proper editing done, and also hand it back to you for serious revision if it sucks enough. We want nothing less than pretty good, so I’m giving plenty of leeway here! (We won’t hesitate to replace you with a backup either.)
  4. This one is semi-optional, but please have a method of contact other than Reddit. While we’re happy to dump you in a chatroom here to harass you for your work, we’d rather have a method such as Discord where you can’t just hop off the face of the earth and ignore us forever. (This has happened multiple times. Really.) If you get selected when the time comes, we’ll hit you up for that info.
  5. It’s an indie subreddit, so indie albums only. Please do not ask us why you’re not allowed to write about big-name records like folklore or we will yell at you, as with Rule 1.
  6. For this first round, we’re only taking 25 submissions, with 31 overall being taken once the second round is complete (we’ll be taking 6 more in round 2) as is standard for this series, no doubling up as with the hell years. We’re gonna run from December 1st to December 31st, one writeup a day. We’ll also be taking backups in case someone isn’t able to do their write-up or we get sent some trash.
  7. Just have fun with it! Seriously, just format a good, detailed pitch and you’ll get a response as quickly as appropriate, and write with your own honest perspective and style. Being yourself is better than any other approach.
So with all that said, we’ll see you all Tuesday the 6th for the first round of signups for the indieheads Album of the Year 2020 Series!

"However, in the nineteenth century the term Macedonian was used almost exclusively to refer to the geographic region; the Macedonians were usually not considered a nationality separate from the Bulgarians, Greeks, Serbs, or Albanians. The diplomatic records of the period make no clear mention of a separate Macedonian nation. At the time of the Constantinople conference of 1876 and the Congress of Berlin, as we have seen, the represen-tatives of the great powers considered the region to be of an extremely mixed ethnic composition, but predominantly Bulgarian."

However, during the Paris Peace Conference of 1919 the Allies sanctioned Serbian control of much of Macedonia because they accepted the belief that Macedonians were in fact Southern Serbs. This extraordinary change in opinion can largely be attributed to one man, Jovan Cvijić, a prominent geographer at the University of Belgrade."

"Za makedonckite raboti (Cyrillic script: За македонцките работи, English translation: On Macedonian Matters) is a book written by Krste Misirkov and published in 1903 in Sofia, Bulgaria. The book presents the author's views towards the Macedonian Question, and explores the sense of national belonging and nеed for affirmation of the Macedonians as a separate people. The book marked the first complete outline of the Macedonian language as a separate and proposed the need for its codification."

https://books.google.com/books?id=ZmesOn_HhfEC&lpg=PP1&pg=PA63#v=onepage&q&f=false

"Finally, Krste Misirkov, who had clearly developed a strong sense of his own personal national identity as a Macedonian and who outspokenly and unambiguously called for Macedonian linguistic and national separatism, acknowledged that a 'Macedonian' national identity was a relatively recent historical development. In On Macedonian Matters, published in 1903, Misirkov, referring to himself and other Slavs of Macedonia in the first person plural, admits repeatedly that "our fathers, grandfathers, and great-grandfathers have always been called Bulgarians" and that "in the past we have even called ourselves Bulgarians" (1974:27, 150)."

"Macedonian was not distinguished from Bulgarian for most of its history. Constantine and Methodius came from Macedonian Thessaloniki; their old Bulgarian is therefore at the same time 'Old Macedonian'. No Macedonian literature dates from earlier than the nineteenth century, when a nationalist movement came to the fore and a literacy language was established, first written with Greek letters, then in Cyrillic. From the point of view of Bulgaria, Macedonian is simply a west Bulgarian dialect."

As much as I would like to reply to all the comments, I'm not going to, because I value my time and well being. I'm just leaving this out here and hope I don't create a shitstorm. I know that there will be links from Macedonian blogs about some supposed documents mentioning the Macedonians in 18th century and maybe even before that, but ask yourselves - Why the majority of professors researching the Balkan and Macedonian topics are not aware of them and say something different? Personally, I don't believe in conspiracies, but everyone is free to believe in what they want. I'm not here to try to impose my opinion, but only to present the data. I hope you enjoyed the post and have a nice day!

DISCLAIMER : I don't deny the existence of the Macedonian ethnicity. I don't want to annex North Macedonia. If they want to be separate nation that's completely fine. Their language was changed enough to be considered a separate one. I don't advocate for extreme nationalism. I don't support my government's decision to block Macedonia's EU entrance and deny the existence of a Macedonian language and ethnicity. I don't advocate for hatred or xenophobia. I'm not pushing any agenda. This is data presented by historians, linguists, ethnographers and anthropologists. I didn't write it myself and I didn't change it in any way. You can check it's validity in the provided links. As mentioned - I'm not here to impose my opinion, but only to present the data. That's not a troll thread and I have no malicious intent.

2020.10.01 16:35 guilt0tine I made a new friend for the first time in a while, but something feels wrong and I cannot shake the feeling.

We met in the start of September when we were in the same music class. The teacher let us chose someone to sit next to and she turned and asked me. I said yes, I knew no one else. We talked a but during and after the lesson and discovered we had similar interests. There is a language barrier between us, she has lived most of her life in Lithuania, whereas I speak English only, but she's pretty good at English so it's alright really.
We have talked more since then, in lesson, lunchtime etc. There are some differences that I've picked up on between us, like she really wants a relationship with someone and talks about it frequently whereas romance is an awkward subject for me honestly, I just don't feel the need for it much. She has only one other friend, and she feels her friend doesn't like her much anymore.
Yesterday, we were walking home. As I left she was interacting with the boy she has a crush on and she sees me, comes over and explains she may have just admitted to liking him. I'm like okay, let's escape, so we walk. And then he says to his friends "yo she has a crush on me haha!" My friend shouts back "id never have a crush on you!" and then he replies "I wouldn't either your fat and ugly." they argue more and she says "Kill yourself."
I just felt very awkward. I'd told her before that this particular guy is kinda shitty. He dated one of my friends before and she broke up because he just sucked that much.
A girl who bullies her said as were were walking "you two look the same." I have never met this girl in my life, I legit do not know her name. I was immediately weirded out. We are literally different races, with incredibly different features. I feel weird thinking about it.
As we were walking she explained more about her feelings for him. She later talked more about herself. She has a very dark backstory. Like dark dark. I'm not gonna spulge the details, but she's been through a lot. She says she has anger issues, depression and social anxiety because of this, but she's not getting help because her mom won't take her to a GP. She's gonna go on her own in a year however, when she's 16.
As we were walking and talking, we worked out we were going the same way home. Turns out she lives 5 minutes away from mine. Small world.
I had mentioned to her that I needed someone to be in pictures for a homework of mine, and she said she could do it. She came round to mine and met my family. My mum and little sister talked for 5-10 minutes, me and my dad were rushing around trying to make the house look decent, it's an utter mess. I changed my clothes too, and we went into the garden to take the pictures. My mum had offered her these chocolate nests she'd made (y'know the ones you each around Easter) and she'd said yes. My mums always like that, immediately offering food when a guest comes, if I'm honest it's a little annoying but you can't really say that when someone's in the house. Now we were outside, she said that she didn't really want it, she'd said it was nice to not hurt my family's feelings. I told her to dump it in the garden waste bin (I plan on retrieving it and disposing of it properly, it was the only bin around.)
We did the pictures and went back inside, then we went to her house. We talked more there, it was just the two of us. She's an emo, I had an emo phase in the past, stuff like that. She also talked more about her friend problems. She said I'm more fun then her friend, and she usually can only deal with one best friend at a time. She asked me to be her best friend. I said sure and we shook hands.
It was fun. I had my hair straightened for the first time, we screamed to My Chemical Romance etc. And we walked back to my home, she went back to hers.
The day was chaotic. I'm still processing it a little. I don't know why I feel uncomfortable, I have a friend, I should be happy. I dunno...
I have a group of 3 other friends, we are quite close. I think something about the only one best friend comment has me worried. I don't want her to expect that she's the first person I look for at lunch, if that makes sense, and it sounds bad. I like one of my friends a lot, she's quite chill and fun to be around and I'm trying to work out my feelings for her because I think I have a little bit of a crush. I don't really know, I have the ability to flick on and off my romantic feelings for others, yeah no, I don't know. But this other friend is the first person I look for at lunch, and I don't want that to change.
Also I realise I might become vulnerable to bullies again. I was bullied in the past, and I never want that to happen again. Ever. But she's quite, I dunno how to phrase it but she immediately swears at a person if they say something to her, rather than thinking about it and that makes people pick on her more, because they know they can get a reaction and something (bad language) they can use against her.
Something just feels very incorrect about this. I don't know what though. A lot happened.
She just messaged me now, and I don't want to read it. I don't know why I feel this way.
This post is very messy, I'm sorry. People say they are on mobile, I have no clue how that affects formatting but I may as well put it here. Thank you in advance and have a great day :)

2020.10.01 15:55 NicoKunde I Now Understand the Relationship Between the Bible and God

By Jean, Cameroon
Almighty God says, “For many years, people’s traditional means of belief (that of Christianity, one of the world’s three major religions) has been to read the Bible; departure from the Bible is not a belief in the Lord, departure from the Bible is heterodoxy and heresy, and even when people read other books, the foundation of these books must be the explanation of the Bible. Which is to say, if you believe in the Lord, then you must read the Bible, and outside the Bible you must not worship any book that does not involve the Bible. If you do, then you are betraying God. Since the Bible’s inception, man has come to give to it the faith due the Lord. It should be said of man that he believes in the Bible, rather than the Lord; that he has begun to believe in the Bible, rather than to read it; and that he has come before the Bible, rather than before the Lord. In this way, people worship the Bible as if it were God, as if it were their lifeblood, and losing it would be the same as losing their life. People see the Bible as being as high as God, and there are even those who see it as higher than God. If people are without the work of the Holy Spirit, if they cannot feel God, they can carry on living—but as soon as they lose the Bible, or lose the famous chapters and sayings from the Bible, then it is as if they have lost their life. … The Bible has become an idol in people’s minds, it has become a puzzle in their brains, and they are simply incapable of believing that God can work outside of the Bible, they are incapable of believing that people can find God outside of the Bible, much less are they able to believe that God could depart from the Bible during the final work and start anew. This is unthinkable to people; they cannot believe it, and neither can they imagine it. The Bible has become a great obstacle to people’s acceptance of God’s new work, and a difficulty to God’s broadening this new work” (The Word Appears in the Flesh). It used to be that the Bible helped me know the Lord in my faith, and the pastor always said it was the foundation of our faith. I thought belief in the Bible was belief in the Lord, and I even placed it above the Lord. I just equipped myself with some dead words in the Bible without thinking about practicing or experiencing the Lord’s words. It wasn’t until I accepted Almighty God’s work of the last days and saw what His words reveal that I understood the relationship between God and the Bible. My mistakes in my faith were finally remedied.
I used to read the Bible, go to church gatherings, and search for sermons online a lot to better understand the Lord. Once I came across a movie on YouTube called Where Is My Home. It was so heartfelt and moving. And the words being read out in the movie seemed particularly warm and authoritative. I was so curious where they’d come from. When I saw it was The Church of Almighty God I went online to find out more about this church that had made the movie. But I found some negative press about it and couldn’t figure out if it was real or fabricated. After giving it some thought, I felt I shouldn’t blindly believe what others say. As they say, “Don’t believe what you hear, but see for yourself.” I knew I should personally look into it to see if it was a good church. I decided to download some more movies to watch. I watched another two, Awakening and Yearning. They really stirred me. The words being read in them were authoritative and powerful, and the fellowship was practical. I learned the root of the desolation of the churches and the difference between being saved and being fully saved. It said that the Lord Jesus had already returned and was doing the work of judgment in the last days which fulfills this biblical prophecy: “For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God” (1 Peter 4:17). I was overjoyed, and realized those words being read in the movies were the returned Lord’s utterances. No wonder they were so authoritative and powerful! I left a message and got in touch with brothers and sisters in the church and saw they were really genuine and their fellowship was enlightening. Being in contact with them was wonderful. I started attending their gatherings.
One evening I was about to download more movies from The Church of Almighty God’s channel. As I was browsing through the movies, I saw one called Come Out of the Bible. I was confused. What did that mean? Why should we come out of the Bible in our faith? How could people believe in and know God without the Bible? I thought about how the pastor always said our faith had to be based in the Bible, and departure from the Bible was heresy. Wasn’t departing from the Bible betraying the Lord? Over the next couple of days I stopped watching the Church’s hymns and movies, afraid of going astray in my faith. But I couldn’t help but wonder, “If Almighty God really is the Lord Jesus returned and I don’t accept Him, won’t I be missing my chance to welcome the Lord?” I was conflicted, so I started fasting and praying. I asked the Lord to enlighten and guide me to know whether Almighty God really is the Lord Jesus returned. The first night of my fast, I hadn’t received any inspiration from God, so I figured I’d take a look in the Bible. I read Revelation 1:8, “I am Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the Ending, said the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.” I also read Revelation 11:16–17, “And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell on their faces, and worshipped God, Saying, We give You thanks, O LORD God Almighty, which are, and were, and are to come; because You have taken to You Your great power, and have reigned.” I suddenly felt that these verses were God’s guidance for me. It says in Revelation that God will be called “the Almighty” in the last days. Isn’t that Almighty God? This discovery made me want to keep investigating The Church of Almighty God. I also decided to watch all of Come Out of the Bible so I would know what that was really about.
A gospel preacher from The Church of Almighty God in the movie shared this fellowship: “Lots of religious people say God wouldn’t depart from the Bible to do the work of salvation, and anything that goes beyond the Bible is heresy. Which came first: the Bible, or God’s work? In the beginning, Jehovah God created the heavens, the earth, and all things. He destroyed the world with a flood, and He destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah with fire. Did the Old Testament exist when God did all this work?” I thought, “Do you even have to ask? When God created the earth, flooded the world, and burned Sodom and Gomorrah the Bible definitely didn’t exist.” She went on: “There was no Bible when God did all this work. That is to say, first came God’s work, and only afterward was it recorded in the Bible. And when the Lord Jesus was working in the Age of Grace there was no New Testament yet. That was written down by His disciples after He had completed His work. Clearly, the Bible is just a historical record of work God has done. God doesn’t work according to the Bible and He’s not limited by it. He does His work based on His management plan and mankind’s needs. That’s why we can’t think of God’s work as only what’s in the Bible and we can’t use the Bible to delimit His work. We really can’t say that anything outside of the Bible is heresy. God has the right to do His own work and to do it outside the confines of the Bible.”
Hearing this suddenly opened my eyes. There wasn’t a New Testament when the Lord Jesus worked. It was compiled by people only after He’d finished His work. The Bible really is just a record of God’s past work. Why hadn’t I ever thought about that before?
The fellowship in the movie went on: “If we say anything outside of the Bible is heresy, wouldn’t we be condemning all of God’s past work? When the Lord Jesus came and worked, He didn’t work based on the Old Testament, but He went beyond that, such as His teachings on the way of repentance, healing the sick and casting out demons, not observing the Sabbath, forgiving others seventy times seven times, and more. None of that was in the Old Testament. It even directly contradicted the Old Testament laws. Does that mean the Lord Jesus’ work wasn’t God’s work? The chief priests, elders, and scribes condemned the Lord Jesus’ work and words as heresy only because they didn’t conform to the Old Testament. They became people who resisted God. If we go by human notions and say anything outside the Bible is heresy, won’t we also be condemning the Lord Jesus’ work?”
Then they read some of Almighty God’s words dealing with the question of anything outside the Bible being heresy. Almighty God says, “The Bible is a historical book, and if you had eaten and drunk the Old Testament during the Age of Grace—if you had put into practice what was required in the time of the Old Testament during the Age of Grace—Jesus would have rejected you, and condemned you; if you had applied the Old Testament to the work of Jesus, you would have been a Pharisee. If, today, you put the Old and New Testament together to eat and drink, and practice, then the God of today will condemn you; you will have fallen behind the Holy Spirit’s work of today! If you eat and drink the Old Testament and the New Testament, then you are outside the stream of the Holy Spirit! During the time of Jesus, Jesus led the Jews and all those who followed Him according to the Holy Spirit’s work in Him at the time. He did not take the Bible as the basis of what He did, but spoke according to His work; He paid no heed to what the Bible said, nor did He search in the Bible for a path to lead His followers. Right from when He began to work, He spread the way of repentance—a word of which there was absolutely no mention in the prophecies of the Old Testament. Not only did He not act according to the Bible, but He also led a new path, and did new work. Never did He refer to the Bible when He preached. During the Age of Law, no one had ever been able to perform His miracles of healing the sick and casting out demons. So, too, were His work, His teachings, and the authority and power of His words beyond any man in the Age of Law. Jesus simply did His newer work, and even though many people condemned Him using the Bible—and even used the Old Testament to crucify Him—His work surpassed the Old Testament; if this were not so, why did people nail Him to the cross? Was it not because it said nothing in the Old Testament of His teaching, and His ability to heal the sick and cast out demons? His work was done to lead a new path, it was not to deliberately pick a fight against the Bible, or to deliberately dispense with the Old Testament. He simply came to perform His ministry, to bring the new work to those who yearned for and sought Him. He did not come to explain the Old Testament or uphold its work. His work was not in order to allow the Age of Law to continue developing, for His work gave no consideration to whether it had the Bible as its base; Jesus simply came to do the work that He ought to do. … After all, which is greater: God or the Bible? Why must God work according to the Bible? Could it be that God has no right to exceed the Bible? Can God not depart from the Bible and do other work? Why did Jesus and His disciples not keep the Sabbath? If He were to keep the Sabbath and practice according to the commandments of the Old Testament, why did Jesus not keep the Sabbath after He came, but instead washed feet, covered head, broke bread, and drank wine? Is this not all absent from the commandments of the Old Testament? If Jesus honored the Old Testament, why did He break with these doctrines? You should know which came first, God or the Bible!” (The Word Appears in the Flesh).
The gospel preacher in the movie shared this fellowship: “The Bible doesn’t represent God. It’s just a true record of His first two stages of work, that is, a testimony of God’s work in the Ages of Law and Grace. It does not represent all of His work to save mankind. The Bible’s records of God’s words are much too limited. It’s just snippets of God’s life disposition, and cannot show its entirety. God is always new, never old. He does new work and utters new words in every age. For instance, when the Lord Jesus came in the Age of Grace, He went beyond the Old Testament to do new work. God doesn’t work according to the Scripture or reference the Scripture. He doesn’t find the path to lead His followers in the Scripture. God’s work is always moving forward. When God launches a new age and does new work, He brings a new path for mankind and bestows more truths upon us so that we can gain even greater salvation from Him. God doesn’t lead mankind based on His old work. That is, God doesn’t work according to the Bible because He’s not only the Lord of the Sabbath, but He’s also the Lord of the Bible. He has every right to go outside of the Bible, to do newer work according to His plan and mankind’s needs. God’s work in a new age could never be the same as His work in an old age. Therefore, the statement that departing from the Bible is heresy simply doesn’t stand.”
I understood from this that the Old and New Testaments record God’s work and words in the Ages of Law and Grace, but don’t represent all of God’s work. I’d thought that departing from the Bible meant I didn’t believe in the Lord. Hadn’t I been putting God and the Bible on equal footing? When the Lord Jesus came to work, He didn’t base it on the Old Testament. If we say that going beyond the Scripture is heresy, wouldn’t we be condemning the Lord Jesus’ work? If I’d been born in the age when the Lord Jesus was working, I’d have opposed Him, going by my current notions. If I delimited God’s work and words to being only in the Bible, wouldn’t I be making the same mistake as the Pharisees who clung to the old Scripture to condemn the Lord Jesus?
The gospel preacher read another passage of God’s words in the movie: “I would have you understand the Bible’s essence and the story behind it. I do not ask that you not read it, nor that you proclaim abroad that it is a worthless book. Instead, I would have you regard and know it accurately. Do not be too one-sided! Although the Bible is a history book that was written by men, it also documents many of the principles by which the ancient saints and prophets served God, as well as the recent apostles’ experiences in serving God—all of which were really seen and known by these people, and can serve as reference for the people of this age in pursuing the true way. … These books are still out of date, they still belong to the old age, and no matter how good they are, they are only suitable for one period, and are not everlasting. For God’s work is always developing, and it cannot simply stop at the time of Paul and Peter, or always remain in the Age of Grace in which Jesus was crucified. And so, these books are only suitable for the Age of Grace, not for the Age of Kingdom of the last days. They can only provide for the believers of the Age of Grace, not for the saints of the Age of Kingdom, and no matter how good they are, they are still obsolete” (The Word Appears in the Flesh).
Hearing this, I saw that Almighty God wasn’t denying the value of the Bible. The Bible is only a testimony of God’s past work that can help us understand the work He’s already done and what He required of mankind then. But God is doing new work and the Bible is outdated. It can’t provide people with what they currently need. I felt resistant when I first saw the title Come Out of the Bible. I thought everyone’s faith was based in the Bible and that was the only way to know how to believe in and revere God. I thought departure from the Bible was departure from God. That’s why I didn’t want to look into Almighty God’s work of the last days. I thought I had to base my faith in the Bible and that the Bible represented God. This shows the Bible had taken God’s place in my heart. I didn’t believe in God—I believed in the Bible. I saw God and the Bible as equal and I delimited God’s work to being within the Bible, thinking that anything outside of that was heresy. Wasn’t I delimiting and blaspheming God? I gasped, chilled at the thought. I felt so indebted to God guiding me to that movie. Otherwise, the consequences would have been unthinkable.
The people sharing the gospel in the movie then said: “Eternal life doesn’t come from the Bible….” I was stunned. No eternal life from the Bible? How could that be possible? I listened to what they had to say next. “This isn’t in line with people’s notions, but it’s an indisputable fact. The Lord Jesus told us long ago when He rebuked the Pharisees: ‘Search the scriptures; for in them you think you have eternal life: and they are they which testify of Me. And you will not come to Me, that you might have life’ (John 5:39–40). The Lord Jesus clearly stated that there is no eternal life in the Scriptures. That’s because the Scriptures just bear witness to God. If people want to gain the truth and the life, the Bible isn’t enough. The truth and the life must be gained from Christ Himself. Think of the Pharisees who clung to the Old Testament. They didn’t gain eternal life, but on the contrary, they were punished for resisting and condemning the Lord Jesus. But the Lord Jesus’ followers who didn’t cling to the Scriptures, who accepted God’s work and words of the time were ultimately redeemed by the Lord Jesus. And so, the only way to gain eternal life is to follow Christ and God’s footsteps. If we blindly adhere to the Bible we not only can’t gain God’s approval, but it’s actually just as Paul said, ‘But the scripture has concluded all under sin’ (Galatians 3:22), and we will lose God’s salvation. God does new work in every age. Jehovah God issued the law and commandments in the Age of Law so the Israelites knew how to worship God, how to live on earth, what sin was, and that they’d be punished for their sins. In the Age of Grace, the Lord Jesus did the work of redemption, personally becoming a sin offering. All people had to do was confess and repent to have their sins forgiven and escape condemnation and damnation under the law. However, the Lord Jesus’ redemption can just forgive our sins. Our sinful nature is still deeply entrenched. We’re constantly showing corrupt dispositions like being arrogant, deceitful, selfish, and despicable and we can’t help but sin and resist God. That’s why the Lord Jesus prophesied that He’d come again to do the work of judgment, to cleanse and fully save mankind from sin. In the last days, Almighty God is doing the work of judgment beginning with the house of God, based on the Lord Jesus’ redemption work. He expresses all truths to save and cleanse mankind and unveils the mysteries of God’s management plan. He judges and exposes corrupt mankind’s satanic dispositions and nature, displaying His holy, righteous disposition that tolerates no offense. The words expressed by Almighty God are things God never said in the Age of Law or the Age of Grace. These words are God bringing us the path to eternal life in the last days. This completely fulfills the Lord Jesus’ prophecy: ‘I have yet many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. However, when He, the Spirit of truth, is come, He will guide you into all truth’ (John 16:12–13).”
They read another passage of Almighty God’s words after that. Almighty God says, “Christ of the last days brings life, and brings the enduring and everlasting way of truth. This truth is the path by which man gains life, and it is the only path by which man shall know God and be approved by God. If you do not seek the way of life provided by Christ of the last days, then you shall never gain the approval of Jesus, and shall never be qualified to enter the gate of the kingdom of heaven, for you are both a puppet and prisoner of history. Those who are controlled by regulations, by letters, and shackled by history will never be able to gain life nor gain the perpetual way of life. This is because all they have is turbid water which has been clung to for thousands of years instead of the water of life that flows from the throne. Those who are not supplied with the water of life will forever remain corpses, playthings of Satan, and sons of hell. How, then, can they behold God? If you only try to hold on to the past, only try to keep things as they are by standing still, and do not try to change the status quo and discard history, then will you not always be against God? The steps of God’s work are vast and mighty, like surging waves and rolling thunders—yet you sit passively awaiting destruction, clinging to your folly and doing nothing. In this way, how can you be considered someone who follows the footsteps of the Lamb? How can you justify the God that you hold on to as a God who is always new and never old? And how can the words of your yellowed books carry you across into a new age? How can they lead you to seek the steps of God’s work? And how can they take you up to heaven? What you hold in your hands are letters that can provide but temporary solace, not truths that are capable of giving life. The scriptures you read can only enrich your tongue and are not words of wisdom that can help you know human life, much less the paths that can lead you to perfection. Does this discrepancy not give you cause for reflection? Does it not make you realize the mysteries contained within? Are you capable of delivering yourself to heaven to meet God on your own? Without the coming of God, can you take yourself into heaven to enjoy family happiness with God? Are you still dreaming now? I suggest, then, that you stop dreaming and look at who is working now—look to see who is now carrying out the work of saving man during the last days. If you do not, you shall never gain the truth, and shall never gain life” (The Word Appears in the Flesh). The Church of Almighty God evangelists shared this fellowship: “If we just cling to the Bible in our faith without accepting God’s utterances in the last days, we’ll never gain the watering and sustenance of God’s living waters. Without God’s judgment and purification, we will just live in the vicious cycle of sinning then confessing. Without escaping the bonds of sin, how could anyone be fit to enter the kingdom of heaven? It’s only by accepting Almighty God’s judgment work of the last days that we can be watered and sustained by God’s words, understand the truth, be freed of our corrupt dispositions, and be cleansed. Only then are we fit to enter the kingdom of heaven.”
I felt more enlightened and excited as I listened. This fellowship on truth was so practical. There’s no eternal life in the Bible—it’s just testimony to God. It doesn’t represent God, much less can it replace His work of salvation. Only Christ is the way, the truth, and the life. Only Christ can give us truth and life. Almighty God, Christ of the last days, expresses all truths to purify and save mankind but I just couldn’t let go of the Bible. That was so foolish! I felt so grateful for Almighty God guiding me to hear God’s voice and turn back from my ridiculous views on faith. Then I formally accepted Almighty God’s work of the last days!

2020.10.01 15:07 ragregory Does anyone know any similar ideas/pieces for my gift idea that I could see for inso?

My boyfriend and I started dating ldr, and with covid we've been stuck to discord, apps, and video calls. I will finally meet him in person on Christmas so I wanted to get a head start on making a sweet embroidery piece.To be sentimental I was thinking of doing something like "16,000 messages (Discord icon), 650 photos (cam icon), and 200 hours (phone app icon) " and the date we first contacted each other - christmas 2020 with the numbers as accurate as possible before I fly down.
I've never done lettering, and have no idea how to make a layout for anything not a cute cat or flowers? Just put them in straight lines? circle them around the edge and dates in the middle?
Any suggestions?

2020.10.01 14:49 LordChozo Hindsight is 2020: #2 - Supper's Ready (Part I)

from Foxtrot, 1972
Listen to it here!

I. Lover’s Leap

In which two lovers are lost in each other’s eyes, and found again transformed into the bodies of another male and female.
And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour. And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets. Revelation 8:1-2
Quick, listen to this acoustic guitar bit with its high-to-low-to-high kind of pattern and tell me who wrote it. Was it Steve, the active guitarist of Genesis? That seems a pretty good guess, especially hearing this song flowing right after his own acoustic “Horizons”. But it’s not the correct guess. Is it then Mike, the band’s steady rhythm guitarist and long-time 12-string guru of sorts? Sure sounds like something he’d play! But no - while Mike is playing the guitar pattern here, he didn’t actually write it. So it must then be a holdover from Anthony Phillips, right? That makes sense, given how much he and Mike played their 12-strings together and found interesting sounds and patterns therein. If it’s not Steve or Mike, gotta be Ant, yes? Except...no. No, that’s still not right. So uh...is it...uh...Mick...Bar...nard…?
No, no, and no again. This one belongs, surprisingly, to Tony Banks.
Mike: The intro was Tony’s, who had come up with it while we were waiting to play a gig… We were in a gym with a lovely big echo when Tony picked up a guitar, and suddenly, there it was. “God! Tony, that’s fantastic!” “What? What did I do?” ...It was probably because Tony doesn’t normally write on guitar that he found the chords in the first place. It was just three notes and not a shape that a guitarist would ever play. 1
Tony: I’d written a descending chord sequence on the guitar, and...I was in the changing room tuning the guitar and playing these chords. The room had a fantastic acoustic which made this particular chord sequence sound wonderful; Mike walked in and said, “That sounds great, what’s that?” So he learnt the part and we played it together, and then we got the others in and played this sequence to them. I didn’t know what we were going to do with it, but it was obviously something we could use as a starting point. 2
Getting someone else to play the guitar part was important here, because so much of this section’s atmosphere comes from the simple chords being played under the plucking strings. With no drums, the guitar playing serves the momentum of the piece, as well as its melodic feel. But the overall atmosphere? That’s in the keys. And then even moreso in the “ahhh”ing vocals after the primary verse. It’s notable that this section runs nearly four minutes, but the lyrical part of it is finished in less than two, after which it’s a gentle yet tense kind of keyboard solo for the whole rest of the run. It’s kind of like “The Cinema Show” in microcosm, and one wonders whether Lover’s Leap was in the back of Tony’s mind when they began spinning up that song one album later into the progressive epic it became. At any rate, they knew from the start with Lover’s Leap that this was going to be something bigger than anything they’d attempted thus far in their careers.
Tony: We decided we were really gonna go for the long one this time, because we’d done “Musical Box” and “Stagnation” and things, and we said, “Well let’s just go for one whole side of an album...and see what we can do.” And we got these ideas; we actually sort of put bits and pieces in the thing. I mean, this song started off just like “Stagnation” really in a way. I had this guitar piece I’d written, which I thought was a really strong opening part. The first two or three minutes of the song was based on this part. 3
Peter: I think we were confident in a way that we hadn’t been before, and so that gave us the mental platform on which to build something like “Supper’s Ready”... 3
Lyrically, I love the imagery here. The idea that The End can come at any moment, with a warning so small as a vision of monks shuffling across the lawn, or even with no warning at all. The idea that two people can share a bond that goes beyond the mere physical, such that they might be whisked away on this spiritual journey together. Such a simple thing, “It’s good to feel you again,” so pure and vulnerable. Where did Peter generate this concept, I wonder?
Peter: I think it was a sort of personal journey which ends up walking through scenes from Revelations [sic] in the Bible. I’ll leave it at that. 4
Well come now Peter, that’s unsatisfying. Inquiring minds want to know! Digging up yields conflicting theories, or perhaps it’s just a bit of misinformation to throw people off the trail. Sometimes it’s attributed to Peter sitting with his wife Jill when suddenly she began speaking in tongues as though possessed by someone or something. Some might call this a deeply religious experience. Others, a mild stroke. Perhaps both, or neither. A different account has Peter and Jill still together, but also joined by Trespass and Nursery Cryme producer John Anthony - what’s he doing there? This story goes that Peter’s wife slept in a room with purple walls, and that the colors reacted to her spiritual energy, putting her into hysterics. Yet another account features Peter at his in-laws’ place, looking out the window but convinced he was seeing someone else’s front lawn, complete with seven shuffling monks. Whatever the story, the common thread is an insistence that this was a real spiritual event of some sort. But not everyone was convinced.
Steve: I believe there’d been some drug taking going on. I believe [Peter’s wife] was having a bad trip at one point, and that Pete and a friend managed to talk her round and get her out of the horrors or whatever it was. So that’s a part of what the song was about, but in a way there’s a kind of redemption implication that goes with that. 5
Peter denied drugs played a part at the time, but then any good husband would want to avoid saying “Yeah, my wife was lit and acting totally nuts,” so it’s hard to know how the events (if any!) actually unfolded. But it also doesn’t entirely matter what the true inspiration was, because what it produced can’t really be denied. And as Steve says, even something as simple as “She’s having a bad reaction to these substances and I need to help her” has a kind of romance about it. “I’m here. It’s all right. Hey, my baby, don’t you know our love is true?” Strong stuff there, and it really helps paint the keyboard work after it in a different light. This isn’t just a musical and spiritual journey; it’s a musical and spiritual journey being taken together, and that means something a little more.
Note as well that already the song touches on its primary theme of transformation. The lovers peer into one another’s eyes and find themselves not simply lost in the moment, but actually metaphysically transported into different bodies. Whether these are their own bodies in an altered state, newly created bodies made just for them to inhabit, or the bodies of other individuals altogether in a different place is never made quite clear. Regardless, though together, the two are already finding themselves swept up in the transformative energy that surrounds this end-times event.

II. The Guaranteed Eternal Sanctuary Man

The lovers come across a town dominated by two characters: one a benevolent farmer and the other a head of a highly disciplined scientific religion. The latter likes to be known as “The Guaranteed Eternal Sanctuary Man” and claims to contain a secret new ingredient capable of fighting fire. This is a falsehood, an untruth, a whopper, and a taradiddle; or, to put it in clearer terms, a lie.
And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Revelation 13:16-17
From Lover’s Leap the band knew they wanted to do something bold and big, but of course they didn’t have a clear idea at the time what that might look like. The song certainly couldn’t stay treading water in Lover’s Leap for another sixteen minutes.
Tony: We’d say, “Why have you got to go verse-chorus-verse-chorus, etc.?” [That’s] fine for some, but it’s nice if you can go somewhere else. And you can tell more of a story that way, without the repetition. 6
Peter: We are learning all the time, and on the whole in this business, it is the easiest field in which to be highly successful and mediocre at the same time. One should be constantly maintaining higher aims. 7
Tony: We wanted to go further. We’d all been wanting to push away from the regular structures. It turned out better than we’d thought. 6
Peter: We were then trying, consciously, to break out of tradition. We were tossing together different ideas and influences to see if there was a fresh way of putting them all together. 6
Luckily, by this time they had some experience pushing away from the norm, creating longer-form songs that did interesting things. In fact, there was an attitude that maybe they had it down to something of a science.
Mike: As a band we’d found a formula for writing music: short pieces that we’d join together into a single song, the length of which would allow us to do something brave and interesting. “Supper’s Ready”...was a great example. 1
Peter: I think we were beginning to know who we were as writers, and also know how to deliver it as performers. So it’s a coming of age piece, I think, in lots of ways. 3
Steve: It was about creating a film for the ear rather than the eye. 6
All well and good, but in order to join all the shorter pieces together, you’ve got to have shorter pieces laying around in the first place. We’ve got our intro in Lover’s Leap. So, uh...who’s got next?
Tony: I tend to remember on this album you’d come in with ideas: a riff or something like that. I mentioned the beginning of “Supper’s Ready” but it also applies to [The Guaranteed Eternal Sanctuary Man], which is another thing I’d written. In fact I’d written on guitar at university I think... So you had these kind of quite specific bits...and we had these quite big chunks that were all written by people… And then the individual bits that came in, we just developed them. I was very free with them. 3
Tony again, eh? And with another guitar-centric bit no less? Well this is starting to get very interesting indeed.
Tony: [The section] has simple chords but they sound nice on guitar... There are just lots of little bits that came together. 8
Tony may have written this on guitar, but the arrangement the section eventually received elevated it a cut above. Bass pedals, prancing keyboards, the soaring guitar figures...and of course, this section also marks the arrival of Phil’s drum kit, announcing itself with some tasteful and immersive cymbal work before diving in with a drum roll and one of his signature fills. The result is a sound that is heroic and grand, especially when compared to what came before. Another classic Genesis trick, that.
Tony: We’ve always worried a lot about pacing, perhaps more than most groups do. I mean, to us it’s very important. We spend a lot of time thinking about what order the tracks go in. We’ve always felt, and this was true of our long songs in the old days, that you can make a piece sound stronger by its position. I mean, we used to do like a loud piece against a quiet piece, or a slow piece against a fast piece. Some things are less obvious than that. Sometimes you are trying to increase the pace: you do a slow piece, followed by a slightly quicker one, followed by a very quick one. And you can manipulate people. A song like “Supper’s Ready”...was a series of sections, all of which I think felt stronger because of the bit that came on either side of it. 9
And why shouldn’t it be a grand, heroic entrance? This is, after all, the fanfare of The Guaranteed Eternal Sanctuary Man. He’s offering, well, guaranteed eternal sanctuary! What could be grander? What could be more heroic? When you hear the strength of this musical entry, it’s easy to get swept up in the majesty of it all. “I know a fireman who looks after the fire” is a good line, but an even better delivery. It has a kind of gravitational pull about it that earns your buy-in right from the outset.
It’s significant enough that the farmer only gets a pair of lines, both essentially the same, before he’s brushed aside musically and lyrically for the rest of the song: “Can’t you see he’s fooled you all?” And I think the point is that no, we can’t. Lover’s Leap was entrancing and romantic; this section is intoxicating and powerful. It feels right, like the culmination that was always meant to come. It’s enough that the sheer ridiculousness of the things this man is saying (e.g. “Look into my mouth!”) don’t really faze. We’re told he’s a trickster, but we don’t really care, because his theme music - his presentation, if you will - is too dang good. He’s even got a contingent of daggone backup singers! Where do I sign that lease again? Because I’m so there.
Steve: There’s more cynicism in the lyrics than people give credit for. People tend to take them so seriously. 10
Tony: It’s quite complex. It’s an excuse for a lot of fun with lyrics. It’s loosely based on the idea of a Second Coming, but it’s all a bit tongue in cheek. 10
Oh, the children! Look at the lost little children flocking to this guy! He must be the kindest of souls, him.
Speaking of children, it seems Genesis ended up having to do a little Guaranteed Eternal Sanctuary Manning themselves to get this thing on record the way it ended up. Hear those little street urchins on record? Always ones to endeavor for authenticity, Genesis went out and got actual street urchins to sing about keeping a little snake sad and warm. As reported in a contemporary interview...
For one sequence of “Supper’s Ready” they sent out for eight children off the streets...to sing a choral part, and paid them ten bob each for the privilege. 11
Half a British pound in 1972 could net you twenty candy bars, if my inflationary math is correct, so while I’m sure these kids felt like Genesis had done them right, it’s a bit of a sketchy lookback. Phil Collins, who played the Artful Dodger in two West End runs of the musical Oliver! should’ve known better, if nobody else. Ah well. When a gang of supersonic scientists come flashing shillings, what little tyke could say no?

III. Ikhnaton and Itsacon and Their Band of Merry Men

Who the lovers see clad in greys and purples, awaiting to be summoned out of the ground. At the G.E.S.M.’s command they put forth from the bowels of the earth, to attack all those without an up-to-date “Eternal Life License”, which were obtainable at the head office of the G.E.S.M.’s religion.
And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads. Revelation 9:3-4
Ikhnaton, or Akhenaten, was an ancient Egyptian pharaoh who turned his back on the traditional Egyptian pantheon, altering (temporarily) his people’s culture from a polytheistic society to a monotheistic one, with the singular focus of worship here being the sun itself. So in the title of this section alone, we see a continuation of the theme of transformation that permeates this epic piece; invoking the name of this particular king of a bygone age signifies that the transformative power is entering an active rather than passive state. This shouldn’t be too surprising, given that the Guaranteed Eternal Sanctuary Man just made a name for himself by promising a kind of transportation: that of the soul to the promised eternal sanctuary.
He’s joined by Itsacon, who is himself not an actual historical figure, but another warning in disguise: “It’s-a-con.” Not that anyone might actually be in sufficient frame of mind to smell all this out when these two are spilling out of the earth violently to annihilate anyone who doesn’t get with the program. Of course, our lovers aren't aware that any of this is in the works when the section begins, which is why it’s able to open so gently and pensively. That flute melody, a reprise of Lover’s Leap, is meant to reconnect the lovers to one another (“Did you see that, dear? What was all THAT about?”) but also to reflect on the merits of what they’ve heard. It’s them wrestling with whether to believe in the G.E.S.M., or the farmer whose warnings were quickly drowned out, or perhaps neither; they could still theoretically go their own way and ignore all of this.
In a way, the characters here are a mirror to Genesis with “Supper’s Ready” itself. This piece was anything but a sure thing, and they were still essentially finding tiny bits of music and mashing them up against one another, hoping for the best. So far so good, but there’s that constant nagging worry: will whatever’s next measure up?
Mike: We always started each album - I did - with a degree of trepidation. Excitement. A bit like, “Well, this is a new one, let’s see what we’ve got here.” But like, will it be good? Will it work? 3
Tony: This was the culmination of something… The strength of some of these songs is their length… If you do it right, you can tell a story within a song like that, and use the contrasts in the music. “Supper’s Ready” was lots of bits. 12
Ah, contrasts. That’s the ticket. We opened with a gentle if somewhat intense section, followed that with a happy, “up” kind of strong section, now a flute reprise of that initial gentle section again. So I guess...go heavy again? Heavier than the last one? Let’s try it!
“WAITING FOR BATTLE!”
Tony: We felt that we were underway, that we were heading somewhere different. Foxtrot was where we started, in my opinion, to become significant. 6
Listen to Phil’s drum part here. It’s a variation on the standard 2-4 snare beat pattern I’ve talked about repeatedly before, but the variation itself is significant. Here he snaps in before each beat, playing “and 2...and 4” in sequence under the words. The result is that the beat is maintained, but feels almost like it’s stumbling forward, about to fall down and fall apart at any moment. Now put with that feeling the imagery of a swarm of monstrous beings (perhaps human, but if so their actions make them monstrous all the same) pouring out of tunnels and other underground passages. Flooding into city streets. So many, and moving so rapidly, that they can’t help but trip over one another in their bloodlust.
It’s terrifying imagery, but the imagery itself isn’t the most terrifying part of this section. The real scare is that the music is so buoyant as all this is going on. “Bang bang bang” as bodies fall, but “I’m feeling good” all the same. This isn’t just a lyrical play; this is indeed a “feel-good” kind of section of music. Isn’t that just a little distressing? Tony Banks in 1986 would write lyrics in “Domino” calling out the way mankind revels in the horrific; Peter Gabriel covered that ground fourteen years earlier. It was just buried in the fantasy of a song with an awful lot of things going on, so it was easy to miss. Especially when the section also has a big guitar solo featuring some of Steve Hackett’s best tapping work.
Steve: On stage I tend not to use the guitar as a guitar, but rather as a voice in the oneness of sound. A lot of the time people say, “Where’s the guitar? I can’t hear it.” It’s more of a special effects department. 7
Once again, it’s a transformation at work: watch as the otherwise normal, generally moral human beings celebrate slaughter. The warlord who has just ordered something bordering on genocide now orders rejoicing and dancing in equal measure. Nobody seems to have any problem with this juxtaposition. Indeed, it again seems happy and right. It’s only when we contrast back to something more slow, quiet, and restrained that the weight of it all begins to sink in.
Mike: It’s funny looking back. The way it happened, it was never like you knew what you were doing, you know what I mean? We had a whole lot of bits, then we started sort of stringing them together… So it shows a bit more freedom. Because we tend to write songs much more compact. Lots of bits in it. Whereas this is a bit freer. You stay on a section for a bit longer and let things happen. 3
Phil: The music and imagery worked so strongly together. 6

IV. How Dare I Be So Beautiful?

In which our intrepid heroes investigate the aftermath of the battle and discover a solitary figure, obsessed by his own image. They witness an unusual transmutation, and are pulled into their own reflections in the water.
And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them. And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves. Revelation 11:7-9
If the title of this section seems to be in startling contradiction with the imagery it contains, well, that’s no mistake. This is the big ol’ “Oh no” moment of it all. Note that the “intrepid heroes,” the two lovers we met in the very first seconds of the song, have not been corrupted. They are witnesses to the battle and the ruin it’s left behind, but were not active participants on either side. Unfortunately, we listeners are not afforded the same luxury of being bystanders; Gabriel makes that all too clear when he tells us that the poor soul stamped “Human Bacon” is “you,” which is to say, us.
It’s not clear what “side” of the conflict this young figure was on, if any at all. It hardly seems to matter now, anyway. This is a conflict with no winners, it would seem. Just death and destruction on a massive scale, with no end in sight. Or, perhaps, with only The End in sight, bringing doom to all peoples. Rejoicing and dancing this ain’t.
So it’s important to talk here about the impact the audio engineering had on this piece. For starters, the guys in the band didn’t even register that they could “cheat” when they’d record the song until producer David Hitchcock clued them in.
Dave Hitchcock: [My value was in] explaining they didn’t need to play it all the way through to record it; that we could do it section by section, with crossfades and edits, then put it all together later. That allowed them to concentrate for the three or four minutes of each section and get the best possible performance, while also allowing them to bring in different sounds for each section, rather than playing it straight through with one long, homogenous sound. 5
This was hugely advantageous; a revelation in music recording for them. But it came with its share of drawbacks, too. For one, “Supper’s Ready” had no sense of cohesion in their minds. They could map out conceptually where it was going and try to imagine the various bits and pieces running up into one another, but rehearsing and playing it in fragmented form made all of that easier said than done.
Mike: I remember writing it and at the time we weren’t really paying that much attention to it. We were working on the Foxtrot album and we were worrying more about other tracks. We didn’t realize quite what we’d got. “Supper’s Ready” is very difficult to play all the way through. We pieced it together in the studio and slowly we became aware of what we had, and started recording it. We had no idea how long it was. We thought it was only 15 minutes long. 10
Tony: I think what I liked most about this song was that after writing it and sticking it all together we weren’t too sure, because all the elements had been done very piecemeal and the first half of the song had been a bit traumatic, because that was when we’d changed the producer and engineer. We finally heard the whole piece back and thought, “This is fantastic.” 2
Yes, see, that’s the other part of this equation. Foxtrot had a difficult production cycle, with Nursery Cryme producer John Anthony proving too expensive for another go, and replacement producer Bob Potter not actually liking the band’s music. So they kept Potter’s audio engineer and brought in a guy named Tony Platt, who was soon also fired for not getting along with everyone. Finally Dave Hitchcock came in, who Tony didn’t care for but someone had to produce the dang thing. And then they decided they’d had enough of the old Potter engineer and sacked him, too.
Tony: We recorded the first half of “Supper’s Ready” with this other engineer, [Bob Johnston]. And then we got this other guy; John Burns came in as the next engineer and we finished off the song with him, and did the rest of the album with him. 3
Transformations on top of transformations. Not that even this happened smoothly; the switch in engineers occurred in conjunction with the band having to abandon the recording process entirely in order to go play some shows in Italy.
Tony: The latter stages of “Supper’s Ready” we pretty much produced ourselves with [engineer] John Burns. David Hitchcock was there but he wasn’t very important. That’s why we didn’t use him again after that. The album was very fragmented anyhow. We did an Italian tour in the middle of making it. 12
Steve: I remember flying back from Italy to be [at the studio] a day or two ahead of the others, who were travelling by road, just to finish off my guitar parts over the end of “Supper’s Ready”. 6
Tony hates flying, you see.
In any case, you’ve got what is by now an eleven-minute song - longer already than both spiritual predecessors “Stagnation” and “The Musical Box” - and though it’s had some good contrasts, it also hasn’t totally gone anywhere. Not anywhere that would produce a satisfying climax, that is. I guess that means it’s time for the grand ending to be developed, right? Some big organ bits like on those other two tracks, big major key things, round this thing off by the 13 minute mark maybe, yeah? That sounds good. And also...familiar…
Tony: It was sounding really good, and we were carrying on. And it was developing, doing little tinkly bits after that and all the rest of it, a few vocal bits. And I thought, “If we do this, it could just be ending up sounding exactly like ‘Musical Box’ if we’re not careful.” So I said, “Well let’s just stop the song…” - we had a really romantic bit - “Let’s just stop the song now and go straight into this other piece we have,”...this thing that Peter had written. I said, “Let’s just go in there. You’ve got this really pretty bit, this really ugly chord sequence suddenly coming in after that...should sound great!” And so we did that. 3
That’s a pretty brave move. You have something going and you admit it’s building nicely, but even though you're feeling good, something tells you you'd better activate your other song? So instead of developing or even rewriting any of what you have, you’re going to simply leave it where it is, cut it off completely, and go into something completely different? Are you sure?
Steve: I can’t remember whose idea it was, but we came to the conclusion that you could join any two bits of music together, no matter how disparate the styles, provided the bridge or atmospheric link was strong enough. It creates for the listener an adventure, an odyssey. You’ve got the stuff of concertos and symphonies, which nod to the past, but it was also futuristic at that point. Bands just weren’t creating pieces of music like that. I think it was then the longest piece that any rock band had ever played live. 6
Tony: “Supper’s Ready” was sounding quite pretty so I made a suggestion: “Why don’t we stop the song there, and just whang into Willow Farm to see what it sounds like?” Because I always like contrast. We all decided that sounded good and when it came to doing the vocals and lyric on it Pete, in the gap, said, “A flower?” Which was great, because it set up the contrast between what had been an ultra-romantic moment and what was about to come up, which was anything but. It’s a key little moment. 2
Eh?
A flower?

Hieronymous Wiggenstaff (he/him): Head of the Hero/Villain school. at least 400 years old. wears shining blue armor with gold accents. also an elf. according to Tomas, he led the charge at the "battle of blood valley", brought the Kingdoms of Rickart and Dawnbreak to a peace treaty, and founded the school. a little boastful, a little prideful, secretly has been replaced with the demon prince Grey, and overall a pretty good dude.
Higglemas Wiggenstaff (he/him): Head of the Sidekick/Henchperson annex, cranky old elf. has a dog named hero who shows no signs of anything strange at all, ever. BUT ACTUALLY, THE DOG WAS A LIE. Also, he's not actually old. BUT ACTUALLY, he is pretty old, but he's an elf so he doesn't look old, i guess.
Gary (he/him): friendly room gargoyle. pseudo-hivemind.
Groundsy (he/him): the groundskeeper. a pretty nice fellow. don't go in his shed.
Hernandez (he/him): beautiful centaur professor of animal handling.
Jimson (he/him): human battlegrounds trainer for sidekicks/henchpeople, world famous featherweight champion, wields a staff. married to crushman.
Crushman (he/him): silver dragonborn with a sickle, and self-described beefy boy! heavyweight blood champion married to jimson. never lost a match for 8 years. full name Frostus Crushman.
Rolandus Fontaine (he/him): former prince, son of deposed king, kind of an asshole, maybe. wears a cape (important detail)
Zana (she/her): "terrifying" tiefling villain sorcerer, friend of rolandus. barkept the test tavern in ep2
Rhodes (she/her): hero ranger, friend of rolandus.
Buckminster Eden (he/him): hero guy. son of "The Iron Lord". their dad is stronger than rolandus's dad. his wiki page says rogue so i think hes a rogue? i never caught that and ive listened more times than i wish i did
Leon (he/him): softspoken buff, bald "fighter" (although i dont remember any clarification on how exactly he fights), sidekick of buckminster, around 28. anyone else keep forgetting he's bald? i keep forgetting it. gets sorta-drafted into becoming a falcon for higglemas and so far hasn't done much else.
Rainer Michelle (she/her): cheerful villainous necromancer with a floating chair. also, her name is pronounced "rainier" despite not being confirmed as such? travis ships her with fitzroy.
Tomas (he/him): human man with "kind eyes" and a good (psychic???) memory. guidance counselor.
Stewart LeBoeuf (he/him): brawny human man. serves food. there is no joke here, i promise
Mulligan (he/him): teaches potions. mentioned but doesn't appear yet. and we're like 25 episodes in. maybe we'll see him someday
Germaine, Victoria, Rattles (he/him,she/her,???/???): Skeleton crew. They live in the training room i guess, and as a result can never die, because "no one dies in the training room!" (note: someone now HAS to die in the training room). also their races are never explicitly stated but i guess they're probably human? in episode 3 travis brings up something about how many bones are in "the human body" and at this point i think i'm looking too deep into this so i'll just forget about it and you probably should too.

-EPISODE 2-

(9 characters)
Riveau (he/him): halfling, blame-taking teacher.
Mimi (they/them): gnome sidekick who builds cool robot prosthetics
Bartholemus (he/him): owl aarakocra accountant teacher, known for being the best accountant in the land and having a face some might describe as "smoochable".

Dip (she/her): sidekick, half-orc twin of pip
Pip (she/her): hero, half-orc twin of dip
Festo (they/them): fairy with "beautiful gossamer wings", independent study teacher of magic, loves to party
Snippers (he/him?): Let me tell you my story about Snippers the magic crab. When Travis gave the list of animals that Griffin could choose as Fitzroy's familiar's current form, he listed crab near the start, and this gave me excitement. Now i knew that crab was pretty unlikely but god i hoped that he would choose it. When the list went on- Bat, Cat, Crab, Frog, Hawk, Lizard, Owl, Poisonous Snake, Fish, Rat, Raven, Seahorse, Spider or Weasel- I nearly lost hope. I was hoping so hard that Griffin would choose the crab, but i was ready to accept a non-crab familiar. It was just buried in that list. It wasn't the most useful animal and it was an obscure pick. And as Travis informed him that it didn't have to keep the form for the whole campaign, Griffin said those five words i wanted to hear so, so badly. "Well then it's a crab." Folks, I do not often react physically when something happens in media. But in that moment, i remember very clearly, i fist-pumped and yelled, "YES!!!!!!" so anyway, Fitzroy has a crab.
Jackle (he/him): kenku teacher of sneakery. creepy dude. apparently knows something about argo? also his name is not spelled "jackal" for some reason. senior unbroken chain member who knew Argo's mom, and apparently wasn't being creepy and manipulative to Argo at all even though he totally was. Also in later episodes theyve started calling him "The Jackle" for some reason???

Jaryd Reginald (he/him): owner of Reginald Ore. Wants the workers to be held responsible for the damage caused by the xorn. (fun fact: originally i wrote down "Jerrod", then realized it was probably "Jared", but was pleased to find it confirmed that it's actually "Jaryd")
Candice (she/her): A Miner. thought those werent allowed in bars but, i guess not. Wants the mine owner to be held responsible for the xorn's damage.
Jade Johnson Esq. (she/her): lawyer.

-EPISODE 6-

(3 characters)
Osric (he/him): the man, the myth, the bursar. finally shows up after being mentioned in episodes 2 and 4. he's an elf. no other outstanding qualities on this guy did me putting a spoiler here make you think there was more to this guy? that's my trick. hope you liked my sweet and funny trick
breeze through the willows (she/her): Pegasus attacked by demons, lost her parents. introduced in ep1 but gets a name here so fuck it. also in ep16 we find out shes a "white arabian pegasus" and i dont think thats a spoiler bc we shouldve really known it from the beginning
Sabor (he/him): Librarian/research teacher. also a TORTLE. Really good at recalling stuff, i guess. kinda reminds me of Tomas's memory thing but i'm sure that's just a coincidence... also hes an unbroken chain member

Althea Song (she/her): elf with autumn-orange hair. representative from heroic oversight guild. i'd like to personally thank travis for spelling her name out. Also known as "Avenging Angel", Adventure Zone Graduated as a hero. Apparently she can HOVER, which i forgot about instantly after hearing it, several times. also she heals people.
Crabtree (she/her): Artificing teacher. Long gray hair with a long grey beard. no mentioned race, one might guess dwarf but that would be an assumption i suppose. also unbroken chain member

-EPISODE 13-

(7 characters hhhyyyuu)

satyr thief (unnamed) (he/him): tries to rob thundermen, dies instantly
Ogre (he/him): teamed up with the satyr. his name is ogre.

(2 characters)
Calhain (he/him): Human wizard, Malwin's magical advisor. Kind of an amateur wizard in a job high above his skill level. Graduated Wigginstaff's as a hero. Secretly serving Grey to try and get the apples.
Spirit of the Scarlet Woods: A spirit who requires sacrifice in order to keep Malwin's herd safe and prosperous. Not keen on dubiously canonical combos, i guess. i wouldnt be either. also apparently the sacrifice depends on personal value, not how much value it has to the spirit.

-EPISODE 15-

(2 characters)
Sylvia Nite (she/her): Fitzroy's magic theory teacher at knight night school, who he turned into a catfish by accident. oops!
Chaos (they/them, maybe more): Presumably a deity, gave Fitz his powers and wants him to give in to his chaotic desires. (physical desc: 9 foot tall, iridescent 'mother of pearl' skin, pure white eyes, fine burgundy cloak with gold/onyx lining. argo, our firbolg, and fitzroy were all given different physical descriptions during their dreams with them, so they might also take different physical forms? probably. thatd be pretty chaotic. for argo: their body is "all curves and moves like flowing water". for our firbolg: "solidly built, broad shouldered and wide-hipped", and moves "with the unstoppable force of a landslide". for fitzroy (specifically described as looking different than last time he saw them): "more angular", movements "electrifying". im not writingmore of these down if there are more)

-EPISODE 16-

none -w-

-EPISODE 17-

some demins happened. the big dudes are called "Pit Fiends" and the armored demon ladies are called "Erinyes", by the way. that was incredibly hard for me to figure out the first time, especially without headphones, i thought travis was saying "pig feet" and i just could not discern what the other things were

-EPISODE 18-

(6 characters)
snow on the mountain: shire horse pegasus
storm at sea: peruvian paso pegasus, vehement defender of The Guardian. doesn't have a goofy voice.. but he could have....
thaw of the spring: a winged horse
night of no clouds: a winged hhorse
The Guardian: "An ancient and powerful being that guards the unknown forest." Has protected the flock from demons for many many years. apparently is the voice that was talking to our firbolg in episode 1?
Grey, the Demon Prince (he/him): wants to cause a war, originally wanted to kill hiero and higgs, forces the heroes to build an army to fight his. As "Fauxronimous", he has skin the color and pattern of (but not necessarily made of) slate splashed with liquid, pointed ears, sharp teeth, shining eyes, horns of unspecified shape. 12 fucking feet tall. wonder if the slate-looking skin is related to garys. plot twist detected? Also i recently looked at the episode descriptions and found out his name is spelled "Gray", but really does it truly matter?

-EPISODE 19-

(2 characters)
Shabree(?) Keene (she/her): Argo's mom, killed on the Mariah, possibly by the Commodore. Long auburn hair, green eyes. Mentioned earlier but described here, so fuck it.
Thomas (he/him): Argo's first mate on the Mariah, as the Kraken. may or may not actually exist.

-EPISODE 20-

(1 character)
The Commodore (he/him): Reknowned hero of the seas, military regalia, great naval hero, presumably responsible for the death of Shabree Keene. No mentioned race. Seriously, they never mention this guy's race. The only thing described about him is how he's dressed and his evil smile. Does that mean he's human? Elf? Dwarf??? Who knows! maybe it just doesnt matter. Senior member of the unbroken chain.

-EPISODE 21-

none

-EPISODE 22-

not any of them. not any.

-EPISODE 23-

(1 character)
Ozymondelius (sp???) (it/its): A warforged teacher who just so happens to like war or something? i guess its in the name. only mentioned in this episode, doesnt show up yet.

-EPISODE 24-

they have a fight in the training room but nobody dies :\ maybe next time. also no new characters. pog

-EPISODE 25-

(4 characters)
Gherkin (he/him): Tall lankier skeleton, has a scimitar and a merkin, which is a pubic wig... and he wears a jerkin? which i guess is a kind of coat? also i think hes mute or somethin
Tibia (he/him) : Shorter skeleton with gold teeth, and long canines. i think both of em are mute actually.
The Lich King aka Gordy (he/him): Rainer's dad. Commands armies of the undead. lives in The Crypt. described as a skull-faced man in a hood, but changes to a shaved-head man with dark skin and vetiligo. Abandoned as a babby, raised by traveling parents, had necromancy powers, took Rainier in. Not actually very scary at all i don't know why he did the creepy laugh. Kind of a warm fatherly figure actually. hm
our firbolg's father (he/him): A firbolg who lived by the code and was there when our firbolg was banished. Came to respect our firbolg's interest in a new way of life, in his final moments.

TOTAL: 72 NPCS! (well, including 2 extra PCs, i guess.)
Average: 2.88 NPCs per episode.
i was gonna not include the bone-PCs and have it be 69 but our firbolg's dad was just too important to not respect with a spot on the list.
anyway as always make sure to smack me with a blunt object if i forgot any characters!!!!!

2020.10.01 13:52 firemanjoe911 Odd issue - GF’s Pi-hole will not work or block if I turn off IPV6

I tried uploading the debug logs, but I got an error at the end of the logs. I’ll paste them here and I’m thinking of running -R to see if that helps resolve the issue, but it’s odd.
All wireless signals made it to the router; however, they wouldn’t reach the internet. All wired connections were unaffected.
Thoughts?
This process collects information from your Pi-hole, and optionally uploads it to a unique and random directory on tricorder.pi-hole.net.
The intent of this script is to allow users to self-diagnose their installations. This is accomplished by running tests against our software and providing the user with links to FAQ articles when a problem is detected. Since we are a small team and Pi-hole has been growing steadily, it is our hope that this will help us spend more time on development.
NOTE: All log files auto-delete after 48 hours and ONLY the Pi-hole developers can access your data via the given token. We have taken these extra steps to secure your data and will work to further reduce any personal information gathered.
